Disease squamous cell carcinoma; mesothelioma Gender male Storage Conditions liquid nitrogen vapor phase Karyotype modal number = 47; range = 32-88; del(p25) Clinical Data male Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated RPMI-1640 Medium, ATCC 30-2001. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum (ATCC 30-2020) to a final concentration of 10%. Subculturing Volumes are given for a 75 cm2 flask. Increase or decrease the amount of dissociation medium needed proportionally for culture vessels of other sizes. Remove and discard culture medium. Briefly rinse the cell layer with 0.25% Trypsin - 0.53 mM EDTA solution to remove all traces of serum which contains trypsin inhibitor. 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. Add 6.0 to 8.0 mL of complete growth medium and aspirate cells by gently pipetting. Add appropriate aliquots of the cell suspension to new culture vessels. Incubate cultures at 37°C. Subcultivation Ratio: 1:4 to 1:8 is recommended Medium Renewal: Every 2 to3 days Cryopreservation Freeze medium: Culture medium, 95%; DMSO, 5%Storage temperature: liquid nitrogen vapor phase Culture Conditions Atmosphere: air, 95%; carbon dioxide (CO2), 5%Temperature: 37°C STR Profile Amelogenin: X,YCSF1PO: 10,11D13S317: 13,14D16S539: 9,12D5S818: 11,12D7S820: 8,10THO1: 8,9.3TPOX: 8,11vWA: 17 Name of Depositor AF Gazdar, JD Minna Deposited As Homo sapiens Year of Origin March, 1980 References NCI-Navy Medical Oncology Branch Cell Line Supplement.
