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: 87012902
Description: Rat kidney epithelial
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Obtained from ATCC, USA
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Applications: Growth factors and transformation studies
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
DMEM + 2mM Glutamine + 1% Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAA) + 5-10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) or New Born Calf Serum (NBCS). Split confluent cultures 1:3 to 1:6 i.e. seeding at 1-3x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C. Remove all traces of trypsin from cultures during sub-culturing i.e. spin cells or neutralize with serum.
Cloned from the same mixed culture of normal rat kidney cells as NRK-49F, but has epithelial-like morphology. It has distinct growth and transforming characteristics distinct from NRK-49F.
