Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
DMEM + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Maintain cultures between 3-9x100,000 cells/ml; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: 2n = 39
Established from a lymphoma induced in a C57BL/6N mouse by 9,10-dimethyl-1,2-benzanthracene. The cells have been reported to produce low levels of type G (Gross) virus antigen (J Nat Cancer Inst 1972;48:265) H-2b, IL-4 and Thy-1.2 antigen. The cell line is resistant to cortisol (10e4M) and dexamethasone and is sensitive to PHA.
