M. dunni (Clone III8C) (mouse, tail)
ECACC catalog code: 94101211
Description: Mouse tail, normal fibroblast
Viruses: See Properties

Properties: Receptors: Ecotropic Murine leukemia virus (MuLV) Applications: Detection of replication-competent retroviruses in gene therapy.
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
McCoy's 5a + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:3 to 1:8 i.e. seeding at 1-4x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Fibroblast cell line derived from the tail tissue of a normal female mouse, Mus dunni. The cells were cloned at passage 14 using Tererasiki plates. M. dunni (Clone III8C) supports the replication of all four classes of murine leukaemia viruses (MuLV); ecotropic, amphotropic, xenotropic and mink cell focus-forming viruses (MCF), showing cytopathic effect. The cells lack most endogenous murine leukaemia virus-related sequences. They are resistant to infection by Moloney MuLV, due to post-transitional modifications of the ecotropic MuLV receptor. Confluent cultures will remain more firmly attached in RPMI 1640 or DMEM + 10% FBS during virus assays.
