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: 87061001
TRANSFORMED BY: Kirsten MSV
Description: Normal rat kidney, Kirsten MSV transformed
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Obtained from ATCC, USA
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Products: Growth factors Applications: Transformation, growth factors and virus studies: Kirsten MSV
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
DMEM + 2mM Glutamine + 5-10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:4 to 1:10 i.e. seeding at 1-3x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Derived from normal rat kidney transformed by Kirsten sarcoma virus. Cells do not produce virus but carries the virus genome. In serum free medium it produces growth factors capable of stimulating quiescent cells to grow in monolayer or in soft agar.
Research council deposit: No;
Price Code: C;
