Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
Medium 199 + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:10 to 1:20 i.e. seeding at 1-2x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA. 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: High trisomic (modal No 80)
Spontaneously transformed cell line derived from an umbilical cord from a new born Japanese female. Tumorigenic in Nude mice. Cells are contact inhibited. The cells will produce IL-6 after stimulation with IL-1. They express low levels of intercellular adhesion molecule (ICAM-1). Lymphocyte function associated antigens (LFA-3) vascular cell adhesion molecular (VCAM-1) and granular membrane protein - 140 (GMP-140).
