EMEM (EBSS) + 2mM Glutamine + 2% Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAA) + 2% Vitamins + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:3 i.e. seeding at 3-5x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin; 5% CO2; 37C. Finite lifespan up to 30 passages.
Karyotype: 2n = 46
Human diploid cell line derived from a young Caucasian female with Citrullinemia. The cells grow poorly when citrulline is substituted for arginine in the recommended medium and they incorporate very little 14C citrulline into cell protein. The cell line also has an abnormally low affinity for citrulline as a substrate in an in vivo assay of arginosuccinate synthetase.
