Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
Ham's F12 + 2mM Glutamine + 1% Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAA) + 10mM Hepes + 10mM TES + 50µg/ml Ascorbic acid + 10µg/ml Insulin + 10µg/ml Transferrin + 10ng/ml sodium selenite + 30µg/ml Endothelial Cell Growth Supplement + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:3 to 1:6 i.e. seeding at 2-4x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
The T/G HA-VSMC smooth muscle cell line was derived from the normal aorta of an 11 month old female, blood type O positive. The cell line has been reported to undergo a total of 30 to 35 passages before the onset of senescence.
