Complete Growth Medium ACL-4 medium supplemented with 10% FBS
The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated DMEM: F12 Medium Catalog No. 30-2006. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium:
  1. 0.02 mg/ml insulin
  2. 0.01 mg/ml transferrin
  3. 25 nM sodium selenite
  4. 50 nM Hydrocortisone
  5. 1 ng/ml Epidermal Growth Factor (do not filter)
  6. 0.01 mM ethanolamine
  7. 0.01 mM phosphorylethanolamine
  8. 100 pM triiodothyronine
  9. 0.5% (w/v) bovine serum albumin
  10. 10 mM HEPES
  11. 0.5 mM sodium pyruvate
  12. 2mM L-glutamine(for final conc. of 4.5 mM)
  13. 10% FBS

Subculturing Volumes used in this protocol are for 75 cm2 flask; proportionally reduce or increase amount of dissociation medium for culture vessels of other sizes.
  1. Remove and discard culture medium.
  2. Briefly rinse the cell layer with 0.25% (w/v) Trypsin-0.53mM 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: 1:4 to 1:6
Medium Renewal: Every 2 to 3 days

Note: For more information on enzymatic dissociation and subculturing of cell lines consult Chapter 10 in Culture of Animal Cells, a Manual of Basic Technique by R. Ian Freshney, 3rd edition, published by Alan R. Liss, N.Y., 1994.
