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).

DMEM + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:50 to 1:100 seeding at 5x10,000 to 1x100,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: Modal No 42
The glioma cell line A10-85 is a subclone of A10 cells which originally emerged from the parent line IA2 by reducing the serum concentration from 15% to 10%. This parent line IA2 was derived from a rat brain glioma induced transplacentally by ethylnitroso urea (inbred BDIxrats). A10-85 cells form processes in response to cAMP. GAPDH can be induced by hydrocortisone succinate and good growth was obtained in semi-solid medium. Injection of cells into syngeneric animals resulted in the formation of malignant astrocytic tumours after short latent periods.
