Applications
This cell line is useful for the detection of LT toxin (American Public Health Association. Compendium of methods for the microbiological examination of foods. 3rd ed.Washington, DC: American Public Health Association; 1992.), cholera toxin (U.S. Food & Drug AdministrationDetection of cholera enterotoxin (CT) and cytotoxinIn: U.S. Food & Drug AdministrationBacteriological analytical manual8th ed.Gaithersburg, MDAOAC Internationalpp. 9.12-9.15, 1995), and verotoxin. 
Storage Conditions liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Karyotype modal number = 41; range = 40 to 108. Stemline number is hyperdiploid. Karyotype stable within stemline number. Thirty-nine chromosomes with terminal centromeres plus 2 minute chromosomes; some cells with only l minute chromosome. The first chromosome is quite large and some of the smaller chromosomes are smaller than normal, but no specific structural abnormalities were detected.

Comments

Note:  Cytogenetic information is based on initial seed stock at ATCC.  Cytogenetic instability has been reported in the literature for some cell lines.

This cell line is susceptible to infection by the following viruses: herpes simplex; vaccinia; vesicular stomatitis (Indiana); pseudorabies

This cell line is resistant to infection by human poliovirus 1.

Tested and found negative for ectromelia virus (mousepox).

Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated F-12K Medium, Catalog No. 30-2004. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 2.5%; horse serum to a final concentration of 15%.
Subculturing

Volumes used in this protocol are for 75 cm2 flask; proportionally reduce or increase amount of dissociation medium 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, which 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.
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:2 to 1:6 is recommended
Medium Renewal: At least 2 times per week (or else hormone production will decrease)
Cryopreservation
Freeze medium: Complete growth medium 95%; DMSO, 5%
Storage temperature: liquid nitrogen vapor temperature
Culture Conditions
Temperature: 37°C
Atmosphere: air, 95%; carbon dioxide (CO2), 5%
Name of Depositor G Sato
