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).

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 1:4 to 1:8 i.e. seeding at 1-2x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
A bone marrow-derived stromal cell line established by A Pessina in 1987 from a normal female 5 month old mouse. A bone marrow culture was treated with the supernatant from Y1 cells which actively produce viral C-particles (MuLV). This fibroblast-like cell line produces macrophage-colony stimulating factor (M-MCF) and exhibits a high sensitivity to fibroblast growth factor (FGF) in clonogenic assays. The cells produce sarcomas in syngenic mice and have a reported doubling time of 14.7 hours.
