No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Applications: Chromosome studies
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
EMEM (EBSS) + 2mM Glutamine + 1% Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAA) + 1mM Sodium Pyruvate (NaP) + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:2 to 1:3 i.e. seeding at 4-5x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: Modal No 11
Derived from kidney of normal adult female Potorous tridactylis in 1962, believed to be the first permanent cell line of marsupial origin to be established. Important because of low number, large size and distinct morphology of chromosomes of this mammalian species.
