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:
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 i.e. seeding at 4x10,000 cells cm2 using 0.25% trypsin; 5% CO2; 37C.
Karyotype: 2n = 40
Derived from a spontaneous tumour in an albino strain A mouse. Cells produce microtubular protein which is believed to play a role in the contractile system giving axoplasmic flow in nerve cells.
Research council deposit: No;
Price Code: B;
