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).
SPECIES: human, Caucasian
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 169
Morphology: epithelial adherent cells; after splitting cells start to grow in colonies
Description: human colon adenocarcinoma established from the primary colon tumor (adenocarcinoma) of a 72-year-old Caucasian man in 1974 confirmed as human with IEF of MDH, NP
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase negative; PCR: EBV-, HBV-, HCV-, HHV-8-, HIV-, HTLV-I/II-
Depositor: Prof. A. Bacher, Technical University of Munich, Munich, Germany
Available in the following LABORATORY:
German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures (DSMZ, Braunschweig)
80% MEM (with Earle's salts) + 20% FBS + 1x non-essential amino acids cells grow slowly; split confluent culture 1:6 to 1:10 every 5-7 days using trypsin/EDTA or, if necessary, a cell scraper; after thawing cells might start slowly to take up growth; seed out at ca. 1 x 106 cells/80 cm 2 in 10 ml medium at 37C with 5% CO2 about 3-6 x 106 cells/80 cm 2 or ca. 1.0 x 105 cells/cm 2;
doubling time of ca. 80 hours;
frozen with 70% medium, 20% FBS, 10% DMSO at about 1-2 x 106 cells/ampoule;
contamination was eliminated with BM-Cyclin (tiamulin & minocycline), then negative in microbiologcal culture, RNA hybridization, PCR assay;
Validated by: DNA fingerprinting (unique Hinf I-(gtg)5 DNA profile) * immunological analysis (cytokeratin+ desmin- endothel- GFAP- neurofilament- vimentin-) * isoenzymes (confirmed as human with IEF of MDH, NP) * reverse transcriptase (reverse transcriptase negative)
