Karyotype This is a hypotriploid human cell line. The modal chromosome number is 65 occurring at 50% and polyploidy at 0.8%. 18 marker chromosomes are common to most cells, of which 7 are paired and 11 are single-copied. The t(8q14q), t(9q17q), t(10q17p) are among 7 paired markers common to most cells. N7, N9, and N10 are absent and N11 is generally present in 4 copies. DM's occurred, but infrequently. Q-band examination did not show the presence of a Y chromosome.

Derivation
The T-47 line was isolated by I. Keydar from a pleural effusion obtained from a 54 year old female patient with an infiltrating ductal carcinoma of the breast.
Clinical Data

This differentiated epithelial substrain (T-47D) was found to contain cytoplasmic junctions and receptors to 17 beta estradiol, other steroids and calcitonin.
Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated RPMI-1640 Medium, Catalog No. 30-2001. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: 0.2 Units/ml bovine insulin; fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10%.


Phenol Red is a structural mimic for estrogen. Therefore the estrogenic activity of phenol red should be considered in any studies that utilize estrogen-responsive cells in culture (RefBerthois Y, et al. Phenol red in tissue culture media is a weak estrogen: implications concerning the study of estrogen-responsive cells in culture. Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 83: 2496–2500, 1986. PubMed: 3458212). The Phenol Red-free version of RPMI 1640, is ATCC catalog No. 30-2602.

Subculturing Volumes are given for a 75 cm2 flask. Increase or decrease the amount of dissociation medium needed proportionally for culture vessels of other sizes.
  1. Remove and discard culture medium.
  2. Briefly rinse the cell layer with 0.25% (w/v) Trypsin- 0.53 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.
  6. Incubate cultures at 37°C.
