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).

F9 (mouse, 129, testis, teratocarcinoma)

ICLC catalog code: ATL99006
Continuous culture, grown as monolayer
undifferentiated morphology
SPECIES: mouse, 129
TISSUE/ORGAN: testis
TUMOR: teratocarcinoma
DEPOSITOR: Dr S. Astigiano, Transgenic Unit, IST at ABC, Genoa, Italy
Cell line available for distribution. For non-commercial investigative use only
PROPERTIES: The cells undergo very limited differentiation under normal culture conditions, but can be induced to differentiate into a) parietal endoderm in the presence of retinoic acid (RA) and dibutyryl cyclic AMP; b) visceral endoderm when cultured in suspension as aggregates and treated with RA. Differentiation markers are: tissue type plasminogen activator (tPA) for parietal endoderm cells; alpha fetoprotein (AFP) and urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) for visceral endoderm cells. In addition, both cell types lose the stage specific embryonic antigen-1 (SSEA-1), and synthesize large amounts of type IV collagen, laminin and fibronectin.
