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).
SPECIES: mouse, SIM
ECACC catalog code: 85011403
Description: Mouse SIM embryo teratocarcinoma
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Prof H Harris/Dr R Sutherland, Sir William Dunn School of Pathology, Oxford, UK
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Applications: Differentiation and tumourigenicity studies
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
DMEM + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Maintain cultures between 3-9x100,000 cells/ml; 5% CO2; 37C. Requires STO feeder layer.
Karyotype: n = 40
Thioguanine and ouabain resistant derivative of SIM. When cultured in absence of STO feeder cells it is stimulated to develop cell aggregates which differentiate resulting in formation of layer of endodermal cells covering aggregates.
Research council deposit: Yes;
Price Code: C;
Validated by: isoenzymes (species confirmation)
