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, C57L
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 175
Morphology: adherent, epithelial cells growing as monolayer
Description: mouse hepatoma cell line was derived from the BW7756 tumor that arose in a C57L mouse; cells were described to secrete several liver-specific products (e.g. albumin, alpha1-antitrypsin, alpha-fetoprotein, amylase); cells may grow in serum-free medium when supplemented with dexamethasone and selenium (= ATCC CRL 1830) confirmed as mouse with IEF of AST, MDH, NP, PEP B
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase negative
Depositor: Dr. H. G. Drexler, DSMZ, Braunschweig, Germany
Available in the following LABORATORY:
German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures (DSMZ, Braunschweig)
90% Dulbecco's MEM (4.5 g/L glucose) + 10% FBS split confluent culture 1:4 to 1:10 every 3-6 days using trypsin/EDTA; cells grow rather quickly; seed out at ca. 1-2 x 106 cells/25 cm 2 at 37C with 5-10% CO2 about 10-15 x 106 cells/80 cm 2;
doubling time of about 18 hours;
frozen with 70% medium, 20% FBS, 10% DMSO at about 2.5 x 106 cells/ampoule;
negative in DAPI, microbiological culture, RNA hybridization, PCR assays;
Validated by: cytogenetics 1 (hypotetraploid karyotype with centric fusion and 6% polyploidy; flat-moded, 53-70<4n>) * isoenzymes (confirmed as mouse with IEF of AST, MDH, NP, PEP B) * reverse transcriptase (reverse transcriptase negative)
