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, BALB/c
ECACC catalog code: 90030802
TRANSFORMED BY: Moloney-MSV
Description: Mouse BALB/3T3 embryo, Moloney sarcoma virus transformed
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Obtained from ATCC, USA
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Applications: Transformation and virus studies: M-MSV, MuLV
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 1:4 to 1:10 i.e. seeding at 1-3x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: Modal No 57
From BALB/3T3 clone A31 by infection with M-MSV. A non-producer, but addition of MuLV permits rescue of the MSV genome. Cells produce tumours in suitable hosts; lack contact inhibition in vitro cultures; morphologically identical to virus releasing lines.
Research council deposit: No;
Price Code: C;
Validated by: isoenzymes (species confirmation)
