Culture Properties adherent
Biosafety Level 1
Age embryo
Strain C57BL/6
Applications
Tested and found negative for ectromelia virus (mousepox).

Effects
No, The cells were not tumorigenic in immunosuppressed mice, but did form colonies in semisolid medium.
Comments
These cells do not grow in 0.3% agarose.
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 10%.
Subculturing
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:2 to 1:4 is recommended
Medium Renewal: 2 to 3 times per week
Remove old medium, add fresh 0.25% trypsin for 1 minute, remove trypsin and let the culture sit at room temperature until the cells detach (5 to 10 minutes). Add fresh medium, aspirate and dispense into new flasks.
