Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
Waymouth's MB 752/1 + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:3 to 1:6 i.e. seeding at 2-4x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: Modal No 85
Derived from an alveologenic lung carcinoma from a C57BL/1CRF mouse. Can be maintained in a completely defined serum free medium, but the growth rate is much slower than in supplemented serum. Used in studies of lung metastases.
