Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
RPMI 1640 + 2mM Glutamine + 250nM Dexamethasone (DXMT) + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:3 to 1:10 i.e. seeding at 1-4x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Derived from a Dunning R-3327 rat with prostatic adenocarcinoma. G is one of a group of variants which developed by a single in vivo passage. It is androgen responsive, moderately fast growing and poorly differentiated. Using this system of rat prostatic adenocarcinomas as a model, it has been demonstrated that prostatic cancer cells can become unstable at any time resulting in the addition of cytogenetically and phenotypically novel clones of cancer cells to the cancer population.
