Organism Rattus norvegicus, rat
Tissue kidney
Product Format frozen
Morphology epithelial
Culture Properties adherent
Biosafety Level 1
Applications
This cell line is a suitable transfection host.
Storage Conditions liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Receptor Expression
epidermal growth factor (EGF); multiplication stimulating activity (MSA)
Complete Growth Medium Dulbecco's modified Eagle's medium with 4 mM L-glutamine adjusted to contain 1.5 g/L sodium bicarbonate and 4.5 g/L glucose, 95%; bovine calf serum, 5%
Subculturing
Remove medium, and rinse with 0.25% trypsin, 0.02% EDTA solution. Remove the solution and add an additional 1 to 2 mL of trypsin-EDTA solution.
