Comments
The cells are resistant to 0.1 mM cortisol and sensitive to 20 μg/mL PHA.

A subline (EL4.IL-2, ATCC TIB-181) that produces high levels of interleukin-2 (IL-2, interleukin 2) is available.

A subline (EL4.IL-2, ATCC TIB-40) that is resistant to 0.1 mM 5-bromo-2'-deoxyuridine (BUdR) is available.

A subline (EL4.BU.1.OUAr.1.1, ATCC TIB-41) that is resistant to 0.1 mM 5-bromo-2'-deoxyuridine and 1 mM ouabain is available.

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: horse serum to a final concentration of 10%.
