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
ECACC catalog code: 87091201
Morphology: Fibroblast-like, bipolar
Description: Human Caucasian colon adenocarcinoma
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Obtained from ATCC, USA
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Products: Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA)
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
RPMI 1640 + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:3 to 1:6 i.e. seeding at 2-3x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: 2n = 46, triploid
Established from ascitic fluid of the same individual that yielded Colo 205, but differs from Colo 205 in having a bipolar fibroblast-like morphology and producing less carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA). This cell line also has a tendency to grow in clumps in suspension.
Research council deposit: No;
Price Code: C;
Validated by: isoenzymes (species confirmation)
