Karyotype modal numbr = 57; range = 53 to 65.This is a hypotriploid human cell line. The modal chromosome number is 57 although cells with 58 chromosomes occurred with a comparable frequency. The frequency of higher ploidies was 1.7%. Seven marker chromosomes, der(9)t(1;9)(q21;p24), der(9)t(7;9)(p11;p22), t(10q14q), der(16)t(7;16)(q11.23;q22), a small ring (about 1/2 the size of a G chromosome) and two others, were common to all cells. Three other markers were found in some cells only. The markers, t(7;9) and t(7;16) were mostly paired. Normal N9 was absent, and N7 and N16 had only a single copy per cell. Two copies each of the X and the Y were present in all cells.
Derivation
The NCI-H460 cell line was derived by A.F. Gazdar and associates in 1982 from the pleural fluid of a patient with large cell cancer of the lung.
Clinical Data
male
The NCI-H460 cell line was derived by A.F. Gazdar and associates in 1982 from the pleural fluid of a patient with large cell cancer of the lung.
Tumorigenic Yes
Effects
Yes, in nude mice
Comments
The cells express easily detectable p53 mRNA at levels comparable to normal lung tissue, and exhibit no gross structural DNA abnormalities.
The cells stain positively for keratin and vimentin but are negative for neurofilament triplet protein.
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
Volumes are given for a 75 cm2 flask. Increase or decrease the amount of dissociation medium needed proportionally for culture vessels of other sizes.
  1. Remove and discard culture medium.
  2. Briefly rinse the cell layer with 0.25% (w/v) Trypsin- 0.53 mM EDTA solution to remove all traces of serum that contains trypsin inhibitor.
  3. Add 2.0 to 3.0 ml of Trypsin-EDTA solution to flask and observe cells under an inverted microscope until cell layer is dispersed (usually within 5 to 15 minutes).
    Note: To avoid clumping do not agitate the cells by hitting or shaking the flask while waiting for the cells to detach. Cells that are difficult to detach may be placed at 37°C to facilitate dispersal.
  4. Add 6.0 to 8.0 ml of complete growth medium and aspirate cells by gently pipetting.
  5. Add appropriate aliquots of the cell suspension to new culture vessels.
  6. Incubate cultures at 37°C.
