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: lung, metastasis
ECACC catalog code: 88021101

Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
Ham's F12 + DMEM (1:1) + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). Split confluent cultures 1:2 - 1:4 i.e. seeding at 1-3 x 10,000 cells / cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin / EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: 2n = 46, modal No 56
Derived from a lung metastasis of colon carcinoma in a 72 year old male. Tumour tissue was inoculated sub-cutaneously and serially transplanted in BALB/c nude mice and subsequently established in in vitro culture. The histological characteristics of the tumour were maintained throughout the transplantation procedure. They have receptors for a range of peptide hormones and neurotransmitters. The cells grow as monolayers, exhibit tight junctions and desmosomes between adjacent cells.
