Clinical Data
47 years
Black
female
Genes Expressed
P glycoprotein
Tumorigenic Yes
Effects
Yes, tumors developed within 21 days at 100% frequency (5/5) in nude mice inoculated subcutaneously with 107 cells.
Comments
The tumor was described as a poorly differentiated ovarian clear cell carcinoma.
Initially, the cells were grown in soft agar.
The cells exhibit low to moderate resistance to a number of chemotherapeutic agents including doxorubicin, cisplatin, carmustine, etoposide and cyanomorpholinodoxorubicin (MRA-CN).
ES-2 cells express low levels of P glycoprotein.
Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated McCoy's 5a Medium Modified, Catalog No. 30-2007. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10%.
Subculturing
Remove spent medium, add fresh EDTA solution (0.15 g disodium EDTA, 4.0 g NaCL, 0.28 g sodium bicarbonate, 0.5 g dextrose and 0.2 g KCl dissolved in 500 mL double distilled water). Allow the cells to sit at room temperature for a few minutes, and dislodge the cells by rapping the side of the flask sharply with the palm of your hand. Add fresh medium, aspirate and dispense into new flasks.
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:4 to 1:8 is recommended
Medium Renewal: 2 to 3 times per week
Cryopreservation
Freeze Medium: Complete growth medium supplemented with 5% (v/v) DMSO
