Cellular Products
mucin; pancreas cancer specific antigen (pancreas cancer associated antigen); carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA)
Tumorigenic Yes
Effects
Yes, Tumors developed within 21 days at 100% frequency (5/5) in nude mice inoculated subcutaneously with 10(7) cells.
Comments
The cells do not express the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR).
A CFTR positive pancreatic line, Capan-1 is available (ATCC HTB-79).
Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated RPMI-1640 Medium, Catalog No. 30-2001. 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. Add fresh culture medium, aspirate and dispense into new culture flasks. Corning® T-75 flasks (catalog #430641) are recommended for subculturing this product.
