acetylcholine
Genes Expressed
adenylate phosphokinase; creatine phosphokinase,H-2k
Comments
Recent data suggest that BC3H1 cells may more closely resemble cells in an arrested state of skeletal muscle differentiation than smooth muscle cells.
Tested and found negative for ectromelia virus (mousepox).
Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated Dulbecco's Modified Eagle's Medium, Catalog No. 30-2002. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 20%.
Subculturing
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:2 to 1:10 is recommended
Medium Renewal: Twice per week
Remove medium, add fresh 0.25% trypsin solution for 2 to 5 minutes, remove trypsin and let the culture sit at room temperature for 10 to 15 minutes. Add fresh medium, aspirate and dispense into new flasks.
Culture Conditions
Temperature: 37.0°C
Name of Depositor W Carlisle
