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).
SPECIES: human, Caucasian
ECACC catalog code: 86010202
Description: Human Caucasian colon adenocarcinoma
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Dr J Clarke, AVRI, Pirbright, UK
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Available in the following LABORATORY:
Part of the Business Division of the Health Protection Agency (ECACC, Salisbury, Wiltshire)
EMEM (EBSS) + 2mM Glutamine + 1% Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAA) + 10% Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS). The addition of Bovine Insulin has been reported to be useful where there has been slow growth of cells. Split sub-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. NB: During routine subculture the cells should always be subcultured before they achieve confluence.
Karyotype: Hypertetraploid, modal No 96
Isolated from a primary colonic tumour in a 72-year-old Caucasian male using the explant culture technique. Forms moderately well differentiated adenocarcinomas consistent with colonic primary grade II, in nude mice.
Research council deposit: No;
Price Code: A;
Validated by: isoenzymes (species confirmation)
