Derivation

This line was derived from the human embryonic kidney line, 293 (see ATCC CRL-1573). 293 cells were transfected with an expression plasmid containing cDNA encoding the rat GABA-A receptor alpha 1, beta 2 and gamma 2 subunits. Genomic integration of the transfected alpha and gamma subunit genes was confirmed; however, the beta subunit sequences were not detected in Northern and Southern blots.

Stable transfectant expressing a type I GABAA receptor (alpha1 and gamma2 subunits).

Receptor Expression
vitronectin; gamma-aminobutyric acid - A receptor (GABA-A, Type 1 BzR)
Genes Expressed
gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, alpha 1 [GABRA1],gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, alpha 1
Comments Produces protein gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) A receptor, alpha 1

Handle as potentially biohazardous material under at least Biosafety Level 2 containment.

Stable transfectant expressing a type I GABAA receptor (alpha1 and gamma2 subunits).

Complete Growth Medium Dulbecco's modified Eagle's medium with 4 mM L-glutamine modified to contain 4.5 g/L glucose, 1.5 g/L sodium bicarbonate and 1 mM sodium pyruvate, 90%; fetal bovine serum, 10%
Subculturing
Remove medium, and rinse the monolayer with fresh 0.25% trypsin, 0.53 mM EDTA solution. Remove the trypsin, add fresh trypsin and let the culture sit at room temperature (or at 37°C) until the cells detach (about 10 minutes). Add fresh medium, aspirate and dispense into new flasks.
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:4 to 1:8 is recommended
Medium Renewal: Twice per week
Cryopreservation
Freeze Medium: Culture medium, 95%; DMSO, 5%
Storage Temperature: Liquid nitrogen vapor phase
