Comments
Desmosomal attachments were observed between cells in monolayer culture and cytoplasmic tonofilaments were noted.
Contamination with Mycoplasma arginini was detected and eliminated in 1970.
Growth of ME-180 cells is inhibited by tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF alpha).
The cells contain human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA with greater homology to HPV-39 than HPV-18.
Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated McCoy's 5a Medium Modified, Catalog No. 30-2007. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10%.
Subculturing
Remove medium, and rinse with 0.25% trypsin, 0.03% EDTA solution. Remove the solution and add an additional 1 to 2 mL of trypsin-EDTA solution. Allow the flask to sit at room temperature (or at 37°C) until the cells detach. Add fresh culture medium, aspirate and dispense into new culture flasks.
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:3 to 1:8 is recommended
Medium Renewal: 2 to 3 times per week
Cryopreservation
Freeze medium: Complete growth medium, 95%; DMSO, 5%
Storage temperature: liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Culture Conditions
