Depositor: Prof H Harris/Dr R Sutherland, Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, Oxford, UK
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Applications: Transformation and virus studies
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
DMEM + 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; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: 2n = 60, pseudodiploid
Used in RSV transformation studies. Demonstrates rapid thymidine kinase (TK) activity following induction of simian, adeno and papovavirus infections. Derived from a male adult African Green monkey kidney. Cells grow rapidly and form monolayers of fibroblast like cells that support the growth of SV40. Chromosome number shifts have been observed at high passage levels.
