Organism Homo sapiens, human
Tissue
mammary gland/breast; derived from metastatic site:brain
Product Format frozen
Morphology epithelial
Culture Properties loosely adherent
Biosafety Level 1
Disease adenocarcinoma
Age 40 years
Gender female
Ethnicity Caucasian
Storage Conditions liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Karyotype modal number. = 56; range = 54 to 61.
The cell line is aneuploid human female, with chromosome counts in the hyperdiploid range. Normal chromosomes N11 and N17 are absent, chromosomes N1, N20, and N21 are weakly represented, and chromosomes N2, N8, N9, and N15 are single. The remainder of chromosomes are often paired. Eighteen marker chromosomes are found, of which 10 are consistently present. Some of these markers are found to be quite comparable to those described by K.L. Satya-Prakash, et al., in their report on this cell line.

Comments
This line differs from others of the series (ATCC HTB-23ATCC HTB-24ATCC HTB-25, and ATCC HTB-26) in karyology and in that it was isolated from a brain metastasis.
Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated Leibovitz's L-15 Medium, Catalog No. 30-2008. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 20%.

(Note: The L-15 medium formulation was devised for use in a free gas exchange with atmospheric air. A CO2 and air mixture is detrimental to cells when using this medium for cultivation)


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 which 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.
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:2 to 1:6 is recommended
