Comments
This is a derivative of the S210 myeloma developed by C. Milstein.
No commercial use or third party distribution is permitted without the concurrence of C. Milstein.
The cells are resistant to 8-azaguanine, are HAT sensitive and can be used as a fusion partner for rat B cells to make rat - rat hybridomas.
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: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10%.
Subculturing

Cultures can be maintained by addition of fresh medium. Alternatively, cultures can be established by centrifugation with subsequent resuspension at 1 to 2 x 105 viable cells/mL.  Maintain cultures at a cell concentration between 1 x 105 and 1 x 106 cells/mL.  Do not allow the cell concentration to exceed 1 x 106 cells/mL.

Medium Renewal: Add fresh medium every 2 to 3 days (depending on cell density)
Cryopreservation

Complete growth medium described above supplemented with 5% (v/v) DMSO.  Cell culture tested DMSO is available as ATCC Catalog No. 4-X.

Culture Conditions
Temperature: 37°C
Atmosphere: Air, 95%; Carbon dioxide (CO2), 5%
Isotype kappa light chain
Name of Depositor K Yamada
Deposited As Rattus sp.
