RPMI 1640 + 2mM Glutamine + 10%FBS (Heat Inactivated). Split confluent cultures 1:10 i.e. seeding at 1-3x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: Modal No 60-64
GR-M was obtained from the thorax of a 36 year old male with skin metastases having received no treatment at the time of the biopsy. The cells express HLA class II and the melanoma associated antigen P97. The expression of epithelial cell kinase (ECK), a receptor protein tyrosine kinase, was also detected.
Research council deposit: Yes;
