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).

MEM + 2mM glutamine + 10% FBS Split confluent cultures 1:3 i.e. seeding 2-4 x 10,000 cells / cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin / EDTA; 5% CO2; 37C
Karyotype: Near diploid
MFE-280 was derived from a recurrent, poorly differentiated endometrial carcinoma from a 78 year old patient. Initially, cells were grown as aggregates in suspension for one year, after which they were transferred to monolayer culture. The karyotype analysis revealed near-diploidy with a complex heterogeneous aberration pattern. MFE-280 were found to be positive for cytokines 7, 8, 18 and 19 as well as for vimentin. In addition, the cells express the placental protein 14, PP14. They have been shown to be tumorigenic in nude mice. This cell line has only been subject to preliminary quality control procedures. Authentication tests such as DNA fingerprinting will be performed only when this cell line is requested.
