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).

Available in the following LABORATORY:
German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures (DSMZ, Braunschweig)
80% MEM (with Earle's salts) + 20% FBS + non-essential amino acids + MEM vitamins split confluent culture 1:2 to 1:3 every 3-6 days using trypsin/EDTA; seed out at ca. 2 x 106 cells/80 cm 2 at 37C with 5% CO2 cell harvest of about 0.8 x 105 cells/cm 2;
doubling time of about 30-60 hours;

negative in DAPI, microbiological culture, RNA hybridization, PCR assays;
Validated by: cytogenetics 1 (hypodiploid bovine karyotype with 15% polyploidy; 58(54- 60)<2n>; centric fusion and large submetacentric marker; corresponds to published karyotype) * DNA fingerprinting (unique DNA profile with (gtg)5 multilocus probe) * isoenzymes (the species human, mouse and rat were excluded by IEF using LDH, NP, PEP B) * reverse transcriptase (reverse transcriptase not detected)
