DMEM:Ham's F12 (1:1) + 2mM Glutamine + 5% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:10 to 1:20 i.e. seeding at 1-4x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
FTC-238 was established from a lung metastasis of a follicular thyroid carcinoma from a 42-year-old male. The cells are polymorphic showing flat polygonal to spindle-like morphologies. Complex chromosomal changes were detected as well as a p53 mutation.
