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).
ICLC catalog code: AL00003
Continuous culture, grown as suspension
single cells and few small clusters morphology
SPECIES: mouse, C57BL/6
TISSUE/ORGAN: lymphocyte, T
DEPOSITOR: Dr S. Ferrini, Immunopharmacolgy Dept, IST at ABC, Genoa, Italy
Cell line available for distribution, only as frozen ampoule. For non-commercial investigative use only
PROPERTIES: The cells are dependent on Interleukin-2 (IL-2) for growth and are used as an assay system for this factor
Available in the following LABORATORY:
- IRCCS Ospedale Policlinico San Martino (ICLC, Genova)
RPMI 1640 + 10% FBS + 2mM L-Glutamine + 50 u/ml IL-2 + 4.7 x 10^-5M 2-mercaptoethanol; Freezing medium: 90% FBS + 10% DMSO; maintain cultures between 3x10^4 and 1x10^5 cells/ml; split 1:5-1:20. 37C, 5% CO2, mycoplasma negative, HOECHST and PCR
After thawing the viability of the cells may be very low. Thaw the cells with medium with 20% FBS and seed in 24-well-plates at density of 2-6 x 10^5 cells/ml.
