Coon's modified Ham's F12 + 2mM Glutamine + 5% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:5 to 1:10 i.e. seeding at 9x1,000 to 2x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: Modal No 100
HF1 is a clone of hybrid cells resulting from the fusion of H5 and Fao. Expression of the majority of hepatic functions are extinguished. The cells contain a number of chromosomes corresponding to the sum of the parental numbers. HF1 variant which lacks the complete set of tissue-specific functions, appears to be a good candidate for regulatory `mutants' which control the orderly temporal expression of tissue specific functions during development.
