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).
ECACC catalog code: 95091409
Transfected by: Transfection Back To Transfection WebPage
Description: Human cervix carcinoma, HeLa derivative, transformed
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Prof H Bujard, ZMBH, Heidelberg, GERMANY (Originator)
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Applications: Gene expression and activation studies
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
DMEM + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:5 to 1:20 i.e. seeding at 2x1,000 to 2x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
HR5 cells were obtained after transfection of HeLa cells with plasmids coding for a reverse tetracycline-controlled transactivator encoding a nuclear localisation sequence (rt TA-nls) and transferring G418 resistance. This transactivator (a fusion between the Tet repressor and the activating domain of the herpes simplex virus VP16 transcription activation domain) can stimulate the expression of a reporter gene up to 10E5-fold. HR5 is the parent cell line for HR5-CL11 (ECACC No.95091411).
