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).
TISSUE/ORGAN: bone marrow
ECACC catalog code: 94092304
Morphology: Epitheloid and aggregate-forming populations
Description: Human neuroblastoma
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Dr C Helson, St Agnes Hospital, New York, USA (Originator)
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Receptors: Transferrin receptor Applications: Carcinogenesis studies, cytotoxicity assays.
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
DMEM + 4mM Glutamine + 1% Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAA) + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:3 to 1:5 i.e. seeding at 2-4x10,000 cells/ml using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C. Clumped cells have tendency to float.
SK-N-F1 has been obtained from a bone marrow metastasis of a male patient with neuroblastoma. The poorly differentiated and slow growing cells secrete different neuroblastoma specific peptides and synthesise choline acetyltransferase. Reactivity of anti-leukaemia-associated and anti-foetal brain-associated monoclonal antibodies could be shown.
