Organism Homo sapiens, human
Cell Type immortalized with SV40 large T antigen
Product Format frozen
Morphology fibroblast
Culture Properties adherent
Biosafety Level 2
Age 20 weeks gestation fetus
Applications
The F.thy 62891 cell line produces ligands of flk-1.
The cell line was derived from human fetal thymus tissue and immortalized by transformation with an ecotropic retrovirus containing a temperature sensitive SV40 T-antigen (tsA58) and a G418 resistance gene.
Storage Conditions liquid nitrogen vapor phase

Derivation
The cell line was derived from human fetal thymus tissue and immortalized by transformation with an ecotropic retrovirus containing a temperature sensitive SV40 T-antigen (tsA58) and a G418 resistance gene. After several days at 37C, the temperature of the medium was lowered to 32C. Cells were selected with G418 (0.5 mg/ml). The selected cells were expanded and maintained. The F.thy 62891 cell line produces ligands of flk-1.

Complete Growth Medium Iscove's modified Dulbecco's medium with 4 mM L-glutamine adjusted to contain 1.5 g/L sodium bicarbonate and supplemented with 1 mM sodium pyruvate, 5% human AB serum and 10% fetal bovine serum.
Subculturing
Protocol:
  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 that 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.
    An inoculum of 2 X 10(3) to 1 X 10(4) viable cells/cm2 is recommended. .
  6. Incubate cultures at 37°C.
Interval: Maintain cultures at a cell concentration between 4 X 10(3) and 2 X 10(4) cells/cm2
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:3 to 1:6 is recommended
Medium Renewal: Every two to three days
Cryopreservation
Freeze medium: Complete growth medium supplemented with 5% (v/v) DMSO
Storage temperature: liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Culture Conditions
Atmosphere: air, 95%; carbon dioxide (CO2), 5%
Temperature: 37.0°C
Population Doubling Time 110 hrs
Name of Depositor ImClone Systems Inc.
