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: mouse, DBA/2
TISSUE/ORGAN: mast cell
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 184
Morphology: growing in suspension in small clumps
Description: mouse mast cells established from the bone marrow of a DBA/2 mouse in 1986; cells can be used for an IL-10 assay confirmed as mouse with IEF of AST, NP
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase negative
Depositor: Dr. J. F. Schlaak, University of Mainz, Mainz, Germany
Available in the following LABORATORY:
German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures (DSMZ, Braunschweig)
90% Iscove's MDM + 10% FBS + 2 mM L-glutamine + 1 mM sodium pyruvate + 8 U/ml mouse IL-4 + 10 U/ml mouse IL-3 maintain at about 0.2-8.0 x 105 cells/ml; split ratio of 1:4 every 2-3 days; viability of cells may drop to about 20% immediately after thawing but recovers after approximately 1 week at 37C with 5% CO2 maximum density at about 1.0 x 106 cells/ml;
doubling time of about 25 hours;
frozen with 70% medium, 20% FBS, 10% DMSO at about 5 x 106 cells/ampoule;
negative in DAPI, microbiological culture, RNA hybridization assays;
Validated by: cytogenetics 1 (murine near-diploid karyotype with 2% tetraploidy; 40(37- 41)<2n>; centric fusion only rarely present) * isoenzymes (confirmed as mouse with IEF of AST, NP)
