Cell Type B lymphoblast; immortalized with Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) transforme
Product Format frozen
Morphology lymphoblast
Culture Properties suspension
Biosafety Level 2 Cells contain Epstein Barr viral DNA sequences
Gender male
Applications
GSML is a B lymphocyte cell line established in 2000 by transformation of mononuclear cells from male squirrel monkeys with Epstein-Barr virus derived from B95-8 cells (ATCC CRL-1612).
The cells exhibit elevated expression of the FK506-binding immunophilin FKBP51.
Chromosome analysis of GSML cells confirm that they are from Guyanese squirrel monkey.
Storage Conditions liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Derivation

Comments
GSML is a B lymphocyte cell line established in 2000 by transformation of mononuclear cells from male squirrel monkeys with Epstein-Barr virus derived from B95-8 cells (ATCC CRL-1612).
The cells exhibit elevated expression of the FK506-binding immunophilin FKBP51.
FKBP51 is the common cause of glucocorticoid resistance.
Chromosome analysis of GSML cells confirm that they are from Guyanese squirrel monkey.
The Guyanese squirrel monkey and the Bolivian squirrel monkey differ in response to pathologic and pharmacologic stimuli.
Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated RPMI-1640 Medium, Catalog No. 30-2001. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10%.
Subculturing
Protocol: Cultures can be maintained by the addition of fresh medium or replacement of medium. Alternatively, cultures can be established by centrifugation with subsequent resuspension at 3 X 10 exp5 viable cells/ml. Maintain cell density between 3 X 10 exp5 and 3 X 10 exp6 viable cells/ml.
Medium Renewal: Add fresh medium every 2 to 3 days (depending on cell density)
Cryopreservation
Freeze medium: Complete growth medium 95%; DMSO, 5%
Storage temperature: liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Culture Conditions
Temperature: 37.0°C
Population Doubling Time 24 hrs
