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).
ICLC catalog code: HTL04001
Continuous culture, grown as monolayer
TISSUE/ORGAN: kidney, embryonic
Original line: 293
TRANSFORMED BY: SV40
DEPOSITOR: Dr R. Notaro, Human Genetics Dept IST, Genoa, Italy
Cell line available for distribution. For non-commercial investigative use only
PROPERTIES: SV40 large T antigen expression. Used for transfection assays and as packaging cells. The cell line can be transiently transfected and give extremely high levels of expression of AP fusion proteins. G418 resistant, neomicine resistant. The cell line is known also as 293tsA1609neo.
Available in the following LABORATORY:
- IRCCS Ospedale Policlinico San Martino (ICLC, Genova)
DMEM + 20% FBS + 2mM L-Glutamine; Freezing medium: 90% FBS + 10% DMSO; Split subconfluent cultures (70% confluence)1:4-1:8 using trypsin/EDTA; 37°C, 5% CO2, mycoplasma negative, HOECHST and PCR
Handle under Biosafety Level 2 containment
The cells detach easily with PBS, but trypsin is necessary to disaggregate the cells
Validated by: Multiplex PCR (tested against human, rat, mouse primers. Confirmed as human with cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (cox I) primers)
