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: mouse, Swiss 3T3
ECACC catalog code: 90092701
TRANSFORMED BY: Moloney-MSV
Description: Mouse Swiss 3T3 embryo, Moloney-MSV transformed
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Obtained from ATCC, USA
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Products: Growth factor Applications: Cell growth studies
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
DMEM + 2mM Glutamine + 5% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:6 to 1:8 i.e. seeding at 1-2x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin; 5% CO2; 37C. Care is required during subculture as cells have a tendency to easily detach from the tissue culture flask.
The cells do not produce virus particles. In serum-free media the cells release a specific growth factor. This cell line is of Swiss 3T3 origin, transformed by the Moloney murine sarcoma virus. It is a non-producer of the virus particles. In serum-free media the line will release a growth factor which can be used to stimulate quiescent cells to grow in monolayer as well as in soft agar.
