IDMEM + 2mM Glutamine + 0.5mM Butyric acid + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS); pH7.6; add Butyric acid to the medium just before use. Maintain cultures between 3-9x100,000 cells/ml; 5% CO2; 37C.
Eos-HL-60 is a variant of the promyelocytic cell line HL60 (ECACC No. 85011431) established by sub-cloning in methylcellulose. Although the cells are capable of reverting to the parental phenotype, most passages maintain a high degree of eosinophil differentiation.
