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, A/Sn
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 96
Morphology: round to oval, single or clustered cells in suspension
TRANSFORMED BY: Moloney-MuLV
Description: mouse lymphoma established by inoculation of the Moloney leukemia virus (MLV) into a newborn A/Sn mouse; cells were described to be sensitive to the cytotoxic activity of natural killer (NK) cells and are therefore often used as target cells in NK assays confirmed as mouse with IEF of AST, MDH, PEP B
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase positive
Depositor: Prof. P. F. Muehlradt, GBF, Braunschweig, Germany
Available in the following LABORATORY:
German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures (DSMZ, Braunschweig)
90% RPMI 1640 + 10% FBS maintain at 0.3-2.0 x 106 cells/ml; cells grow very fast; split ratio of 1:5 to 1:10; seed out at ca. 5 x 105 cells/ml at 37C with 5% CO2 maximal density of about 3.0 x 106 cells/ml;
doubling time of ca. 20 hours;
frozen with 70% medium, 20% FBS, 10% DMSO at about 5 x 106 cells/ampoule;
contamination was eliminated with Mycoplasma Removal Agent, then negative in DAPI, microbiological culture, RNA hybridization, PCR assays;
Validated by: cytogenetics 1 (hyperdiploid, 8% polyploid; 41(38-42)<2n>; mouse chromosome morphology confirmed) * isoenzymes (confirmed as mouse with IEF of AST, MDH, PEP B) * reverse transcriptase (reverse transcriptase negative)
