Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Dr M Weiss, Dept. Biologie Moleculaire, Institute Pasteur, Paris, FRANCE (Originator)
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Products: Albumin and hepatocyte markers Applications: Gene expression studies.
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
Coon's modified Ham's F12 + 2mM Glutamine + 5% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split semi-confluent cultures (70%) 1:10 i.e. seeding at 9x1000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C. Saturation density is reached at 15x1,000,000 cells/10cm² dish.
Karyotype: Hyperdiploid, 51 chromosomes
C2-Rev 7 is a revertant of the C2 variants, selected by virtue of its capacity to grow in glucose free medium (containing dialysed serum) where survival requires activity of the liver-specific gluconeogenic pathway. Expression of the entire set of liver specific functions is restored. Albumin and hepatocyte markers present.
