Properties: Applications: Enzymatic studies
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
Ham's F12 + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:3 to 1:10 i.e. seeding at 1-3x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: 2n = 22
Derived from parent line CHO-K1. Cells were exposed to increasing concentrations of compactin over 8 months. During this exposure the level of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase synthesis increased 500-fold. The enzyme controls cholesterol synthesis.
Research council deposit: No;
Price Code: C;
Validated by: isoenzymes (species confirmation)
