DMEM + 2mM Glutamine + 5% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:6 to 1:14 i.e. seeding at 3x10,000-1x100,000 cells/cm2; 5% CO2; 37C using 0.25% trypsin/EDTA.
Karyotype: 2n = 22
Derived from the lung tissue of a male Chinese hamster. The cells exhibit a high plating efficiency and a generation time of 12-14 hours. Originally used in the discovery of X-ray induced damage and recovery in mammalian cells. This is a clone of cell line V79 (ECACC No. 86041102).
