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).
ECACC catalog code: 90062901
Description: Rat colonic carcinoma
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Dr Martin, Immunology Laboratory, Faculty of Medicine, INSERM, Dijon, FRANCE
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Applications: Metastasis studies
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
DMEM + F10 (1:1) + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS) or 2% Rat Serum. Split confluent cultures 1:3 to 1:5 i.e. seeding at 2-4x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
This cell line has properties essential for study of metastasis of colon carcinomas; a reproducible pattern of metastatic behaviour and ability to be propagated both in vitro and in vivo to facilitate identification of biochemical correlates of metastasis.
