This is the complete description of the cell line that you selected.
By clicking on a generic term (e.g., SPECIES) you will go to the corresponding index (e.g., index of species), while by clicking on a specific term (e.g., retinoblastoma) you will go to the list of corresponding cell lines (e.g., retionoblastoma cell lines).
SPECIES: mouse, 129/SV
ECACC catalog code: 85061803
Description: Mouse 129 embryo teratocarcinoma
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Dr E Robertson, Department of Genetics, University of Cambridge., UK
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Applications: Differentiation studies
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
DMEM + 2mM Glutamine + 10-15% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Pre-soak flasks in 0.1% gelatin for over 2 hours and wash with PBS. Split confluent cultures 1:3 to 1:6 i.e. seeding at 2-4x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin EDTA; 5% CO2, 37C. Upon resuscitation cells shed a lot of debris, leave for 2 days before subculture. Cells will attach with or without the use of collagen.
Derived from testicular carcinoma. F9 undergo very limited differentiation under normal conditions but can be induced to differentiate into parietal endoderm in the presence of retinoic acid and dibutyryl cAMP.
Research council deposit: No;
Price Code: B;
Validated by: isoenzymes (species confirmation)
