Karyotype The stemline chromosome number is hypotetraploid, with the 2S component occurring at 4.4%. Marker chromosomes 1p, t(1q;11q); 11q+; t(13;?); 16q+; t(12q; 18q); M10; t(2q;13q); i(15); and ?t(xp;21q) occurred in all S metaphases, and t(1p;?); t(1p;14q); t(16;?), and t(14;21) occurred in some. In addition, 4 to 9 small markers of unidentifiable origin occurred frequently. Chromosome No. 7 was generally hexasomic, X chromosomes were disomic, and normal No. 15 was absent. No Y chromosome was detected in the QM stained preparation.

Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated Eagle's Minimum Essential Medium, Catalog No. 30-2003. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10%.
Subculturing
  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.
