EMEM (EBSS) + 2mM Glutamine + 1% Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAA) + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:2 to 1:6 i.e. seeding at 2x10,000 to 5x100,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: 2n = 46
Derived from a grade 4 transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder of a 44 year old Caucasian male who had not received chemo or radiation therapy. The cells grow in soft agar, produce fibrinolytic activity and are tumorigenic in mice and hamsters.
