Organism Mus musculus, mouse
Cell Type B lymphoblast
Product Format frozen
Morphology lymphoblast
Culture Properties suspension
Biosafety Level 1
Disease plasmacytoma; myeloma
Strain BALB/c
Applications This cell line is a suitable transfection host.

Antigen Expression
H-2d
Comments
The cells are resistant to 8-azaguanine and are HAT sensitive.
They can be used as fusion partners for producing hybridomas.
The cells have been reported to be cholesterol auxotrophs due to a deficiency in 3-ketosteroid reductase activity.
Tested and found negative for ectromelia virus (mousepox).
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: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10%.
Subculturing
Cultures can be maintained by addition or replacement of fresh medium. Start new cultures at 4 X 105 viable cells/mL and subculture before the cell density reaches 2 X 106 cells/mL.
Medium Renewal: Every 3 to 4 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°C
Name of Depositor JF Kearney
