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: 86061902
Description: Mouse lymphoblast
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Dr J Garland, Department of Immunology, University of Manchester, UK
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Receptors: Interleukin 3 (IL-3) Applications: Growth factor studies, IL-2 assays
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
RPMI 1640 + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Maintain cultures between 10,000 to 100,000 cells/ml; 5% CO2; 37C. Cells will rapidly die at high densities above. 5x100,000 cells/ml. Culture very sensitive to agitation.
Derived from a mouse basophil clone and is dependent on Interleukin-3 (IL-3) for growth. IL-3 may be added in the form of Wehi conditioned media (10-20%). Culture densities between 10,000 and 100,000 cells/ml is necessary to retain cells in exponential growth phase.
