RPMI 1640 + 2mM Glutamine + 1Ám cisplatinum + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) (cisplatinum only necessary every 2-3 passages). Split confluent cultures 1:5 to 1:20 i.e. seeding at 1x1,000 to 1x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: Modal No 46
This cisplatin-resistant cell line has been developed by chronic exposure of the parent cisplatin-sensitive A2780 cell line (ECACC No. 93112519) to increasing concentrations of cisplatin. A2780cis is cross-resistant to melphalan, adriamycin and irradiation. An increased ability to repair DNA damage as well as cytogenetic abnormalities has been observed. In order to retain resistance cisplatinum has to be added to the media every 2-3 passages. In addition to this matched pair of drug-sensitive/resistant cell lines an adriamycin-resistant cell line, A2780adr (ECACC No. 93112520), has been isolated from the same parental line A2780.
