Documentation

Biosafety Icon BSL 2

ATCC determines the biosafety level of a material based on our risk assessment as guided by the current edition of Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories (BMBL), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It is your responsibility to understand the hazards associated with the material per your organization’s policies and procedures as well as any other applicable regulations as enforced by your local or national agencies.

ATCC highly recommends that appropriate personal protective equipment is always used when handling vials. For cultures that require storage in liquid nitrogen, it is important to note that some vials may leak when submersed in liquid nitrogen and will slowly fill with liquid nitrogen. Upon thawing, the conversion of the liquid nitrogen back to its gas phase may result in the vial exploding or blowing off its cap with dangerous force creating flying debris. Unless necessary, ATCC recommends that these cultures be stored in the vapor phase of liquid nitrogen rather than submersed in liquid nitrogen.

Detailed product information

General

Specific applications
This cell line is a suitable transfection host.

The cells will pinocytose neutral red and will phagocytose latex beads and zymosan. They are capable of antibody dependent lysis of sheep erythrocytes and tumor cell targets. LPS or PPD treatment for 2 days stimulates lysis of erythrocytes but not tumor cell targets.

Immortalization method
Abelson murine leukemia virus transformed
Antigen expression
H-2d
Genes expressed
lysozyme; H-2d; ectromelia virus (mousepox) negative.
Expression markers
Complement (C3)
Comments
This cell line is easy to propagate, high efficiency for DNA transfection, sensitivity to RNA interference, and supports replication of murine noroviruses. This cell line is negative for surface immunoglobulin (sIg-), Ia (Ia-) and Thy-1.2 (Thy-1.2). When this line was established, it was described as not secreting detectable virus particles and negative using the XC plaque formation assay. Based on a published study by Dr. Janet W. Hartley in 2008, this line was demonstrated to express ecotropic and polytropic MuLV, and is positive using the XC plaque assay for virus replication.RefHartley JW, et al. Expression of infectious murine leukemia viruses by RAW264.7 cells, a potential complication for studies with a widely used mouse macrophage cell line. Retrovirology. 4: 5:1, 2008. PubMed 18177500.

Handling information

Unpacking and storage instructions
  1. Check all containers for leakage or breakage.
  2. Remove the frozen cells from the dry ice packaging and immediately place the cells at a temperature below ­-130°C, preferably in liquid nitrogen vapor, until ready for use.
Complete medium
The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated Dulbecco's Modified Eagle's Medium, Catalog No. 30-2002. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10%.
Temperature
37°C
Atmosphere
95% Air, 5% CO2
Handling procedure
To insure the highest level of viability, thaw the vial and initiate the culture as soon as possible upon receipt. If upon arrival, continued storage of the frozen culture is necessary, it should be stored in liquid nitrogen vapor phase and not at -70°C.  Storage at -70°C will result in loss of viability.
  1. Thaw the vial by gentle agitation in a 37°C water bath. To reduce the possibility of contamination, keep the O-ring and cap out of the water.  Thawing should be rapid (approximately 2 minutes).
  2. Remove the vial from the water bath as soon as the contents are thawed, and decontaminate by dipping in or spraying with 70% ethanol. All of the operations from this point on should be carried out under strict aseptic conditions.
  3. It is recommended that the cryoprotective agent be removed immediately.  Centrifuge the cell suspension at approximately 125 x g for 5 to 10 minutes.  Discard the supernatant and resuspend the cell pellet in an appropriate amount of fresh growth medium.
  4. Transfer the cells to an appropriate size vessel.  It is important to avoid excessive alkalinity of the medium during recovery of the cells.  It is suggested that, prior to the addition of the vial contents, the culture vessel containing the growth medium be placed into the incubator for at least 15 minutes to allow the medium to reach its normal pH (7.0 to 7.6).
  5. Incubate the culture at 37°C in a suitable incubator.  A 5% CO2 in air atmosphere is recommended if using the medium described on this product sheet.
Subculturing procedure
Subcultures are prepared by scraping. For a 75 cm2 flask, remove all but 10 mL culture medium (adjust amount accordingly for other culture vessels). Corning® T-75 flasks (catalog #430641) are recommended for subculturing this product. Dislodge cells from the flask substrate with a cell scraper; aspirate and add appropriate aliquots of the cell suspension into new culture vessels.
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:3 to 1:6 is recommended
Medium Renewal: Replace or add medium every 2 to 3 days.
Reagents for cryopreservation
Complete growth medium supplemented with 5% (v/v) DMSO
