SJD.1 is a fibroblast cell line derived from amputated caudal fins of an adult zebrafish, strain SJD.
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: heat-inactivated fetal bovine 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- 0.53mM EDTA-0.5% (w/v) polyvinylpyrrolidone solution to remove all traces of serum ,which contains trypsin inhibitor.
  3. Add 2.0 to 3.0 mL of Trypsin-EDTA- polyvinylpyrrolidone solution to flask and observe cells under an inverted microscope until cell layer is dispersed (usually within 5 to 15 minutes).
  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 28°C.

Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:3 to 1:4 is recommended
Medium Renewal: Every 2 to 3 days

Note: For more information on enzymatic dissociation and subculturing of cell lines consult Chapter 10 in Culture of Animal Cells, a manual of Basic Technique by R. Ian Freshney, 3rd edition, published by Alan R. Liss, N.Y., 1994.
