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).
ICLC catalog code: HTL98009
Continuous culture, grown as suspension
irregularly shaped aggregates morphology
SPECIES: human Karyology: aneuploid: the modal chromosome number tends to decline
TISSUE/ORGAN: lung, pleural effusion
TUMOR: carcinoma, small cell
DEPOSITOR: Obtained from ECACC
Cell line available for distribution. For non-commercial investigative use only
PROPERTIES: the cell line has been reported to produce ACTH and related peptides, and calcitonin. HLA class I and II expressed
Available in the following LABORATORY:
- IRCCS Ospedale Policlinico San Martino (ICLC, Genova)
RPMI 1640 + 10% FBS + 2mM L-Glutamine; Freezing medium: Culture medium + 50% FBS + 10% DMSO; split 1:2-1:4; seed at 1-2 x 10^5 cells/cm2; 37C, 5% CO2, mycoplasma negative, HOECHST and PCR
The viability may be low after thawing; thaw the cells with medium supplemented with FBS 20%.
