Comments

This is a substrain of SK-UT-1 (see ATCC HTB-114) which reportedly differs in morphology, karyology and in the type of tumor which develops on animal inoculation.

The cells form well differentiated adenocarcinomas consistent with endometrial carcinoma.

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 Remove medium, and rinse with 0.25% trypsin, 0.03% EDTA solution. Remove the solution and add an additional 1 to 2 mL of trypsin-EDTA solution. Allow the flask to sit at room temperature (or at 37°C) until the cells detach. Add fresh culture medium, aspirate and dispense into new culture flasks.

Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:5 to 1:10 is recommended
Medium Renewal: Every 2 to 3 days
Cryopreservation
Culture medium, 95%; DMSO, 5%
Culture Conditions
Temperature: 37°C
