Organism Homo sapiens, human
Tissue spleen
Product Format frozen
Morphology monocyte/macrophage
Culture Properties suspension, multicell aggregates, Single cells are usually nonadherent but may become adherent.
Biosafety Level 2 [Cells contain Epstein-Barr Viral DNA sequences]
Storage Conditions liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Derivation
The KMA cell line was established from cryopreserved human spleen cells.
Complete Growth Medium Iscove's modified Dulbecco's medium with 4 mM L-glutamine adjusted to contain 1.5 g/L sodium bicarbonate and supplemented with 0.05 mM 2-mercaptoethanol, 0.1 mM hypoxanthine and 0.016 mM thymidine, 90%; fetal bovine serum, 10%
Subculturing
Cultures can be maintained by the addition of fresh medium or replacement of medium. Alternatively, cultures can be established by centrifugation with subsequent resuspension at 3 x 105 viable cells/mL. Maintain cell density between 2 x 105 and 2 x 106 viable cells/mL.
