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: 87021202
Description: Human Caucasian colon adenocarcinoma
Viruses: See Properties
Depositor: Obtained from ATCC, USA
No restrictions. Patent: None Specified By Depositor
Properties: Products: Carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), Mucin Applications: Tumourigenicity studies
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). Split confluent cultures 1:2 to 1:4 i.e. seeding at 2-5x10,000 cells/cm2 by scraping; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: Modal No 45 (2n=46)
Derived from a 58 year old female Caucasian with Dukes type B adenocarcinoma of the colon. The cells secrete CEA and mucin and are tumorigenic in nude mice. LS174T was derived from the same patient. The cells have not been exposed to trypsin.
