Organism Mus musculus, mouse
Cell Type macrophage (alveolar); infected with J2 viru
Product Format frozen
Morphology macrophage
Culture Properties suspension; some adherent cells
Biosafety Level 2
Age 10 weeks old
Gender female
Strain C57BL/6J
Applications
Flow cytometry detected the product of the raf gene in the cytoplasm of these cell lines.
Studies on the tumoricidal properties of these cell lines demonstrated differences in their response to a panel of known macrophage activators.
AMJ2-C11 most closely resembled the response pattern of the parental AM, since it could be activated by either the combination of rMuIFN-gamma plus LPS or rMuIFN-gamma plus MDP.
They are phagocytic, non-specific esterase positive and they express macrophage Mac-1 antigens and Fc receptors.

Comments
AMJ2-C8 (ATCC CRL-2455) and AMJ2-C11 (ATCC CRL-2456) are cloned, continuous, alveolar macrophage (AM) cell lines generated from C57BL6J mice by in vitro infection with the J2 retrovirus carrying the v-raf and v-myc oncogenes.
Flow cytometry detected the product of the raf gene in the cytoplasm of these cell lines.
Studies on the tumoricidal properties of these cell lines demonstrated differences in their response to a panel of known macrophage activators.
AMJ2-C8 was activated following exposure to recombinant murine interferon gamma (rMuIFN-gamma) but not lipopolysaccharide (LPS) or muramyl dipeptide (MDP).
AMJ2-C11 most closely resembled the response pattern of the parental AM, since it could be activated by either the combination of rMuIFN-gamma plus LPS or rMuIFN-gamma plus MDP.
The cells retain many characteristics of alveolar macrophages. They are phagocytic, non-specific esterase positive and they express macrophage Mac-1 antigens and Fc receptors.
