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: rat, buffalo
DSMZ catalog code: ACC 106
Morphology: adherent cells growing in big clusters, different cellular forms
Susceptibility to viruses: herpes simplex * vaccinia * vesic. stomatitis (Indiana)
Description: rat hepatoma a clonal strain of epithelial cells was derived from a transplantable Morris hepatoma ( 7795, Buffalo strain) in 1967; cells were described to synthesize and to secrete serum albumin and serum complement component C9 confirmed as rat with IEF of AST, NP
Viruses: ELISA: reverse transcriptase negative
Depositor: Dr. M. Ferro, Institute of General Pathology, University of Genova, Genova, Italy
Available in the following LABORATORY:
German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures (DSMZ, Braunschweig)
85-90% Dulbecco's MEM + 10-15% FBS split confluent culture 1:2 to 1:4 about once or twice per week using trypsin/EDTA; seed out at ca. 2 x 106 cells/75 cm 2 at 37C with 5-10% CO2 cell harvest of about 20 x 106 cells/175 cm 2;
doubling time of ca. 33-60 hours;
frozen with 70% medium, 20% FBS, 10% DMSO at about 1 x 106 cells/ampoule;
contamination was eliminated with BM-Cyclin (tiamulin & minocycline), then negative in DAPI, microbiological culture, RNA hybridization assays;
Validated by: cytogenetics 1 (near-diploid rat karyotype with 10% polyploidy; 44(40-46)<2n>) * DNA fingerprinting (unique Hinf I-(gtg)5 DNA profile) * isoenzymes (confirmed as rat with IEF of MPI, NP) * reverse transcriptase (reverse transcriptase negative)
