This line and a substrain HEC-1-B (ATCC HTB-113) were isolated in 1968 by H. Kuramoto and associates from a patient with stage IA endometrial cancer.
Clinical Data
female

Antigen Expression
Blood Type B; Rh+
Receptor Expression
Receptor expression: platelet activating factor (PAF)
Oncogene c-fos +
Genes Expressed
Oncogenes: c-fos +
Tumorigenic Yes
Effects
Yes, in nude mice
Yes, in the cheek pouch of cortisone treated hamsters
Comments
PAF induces increased expression of c-fos.
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 medium, and rinse with 0.25% trypsin, 0.03% EDTA solution. Remove the solution and add an additional 1 to 2 mL of trypsin-EDTA solution. Allow the flask to sit at room temperature (or at 37°C) until the cells detach. Add fresh culture medium, aspirate and dispense into new culture flasks.

Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:4 to 1:8 is recommended
Medium Renewal: Every 2 to 3 days

Cryopreservation
Culture medium, 95%; DMSO, 5%
Culture Conditions
Atmosphere: air, 95%; carbon dioxide (CO2), 5%
Temperature: 37°C
Isoenzymes
AK-1, 1
ES-D, 1
G6PD, B
GLO-I, 2
Me-2, 1
PGM1, 1

The cells form moderately well differentiated adenocarcinomas consistent with endometrial carcinoma (grade II).

The cells form typical papillary adenomas.
