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).

Depositor: Prof H Bujard, ZMBH, Heidelberg, GERMANY (Originator)
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Applications: Gene activation and expression 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.
The HtTA-1 cell line was derived from HeLa cells being stably transfected with a tetracycline-controlled transactivator (tTA) consisting out of the tet repressor fused with the activating domain of virion protein 16 of herpes simplex virus. This transactivator stimulates transcription from a minimal promoter sequence derived from the human cytomegalovirus promoter IE combined with tet operator sequences. This system allows differential control of the activity of an individual gene in mammalian cells and is suitable for creation of 'on/off' situations for such genes in a reversible way.
