Effects
Yes, forms colonies in soft agar
Comments

The cells form colonies in soft agar, and are positive for SV40 large T antigen.

The cells display prominent cytoskeletal staining for actin, and have abundant parallel fibrils in the cytoplasm. 

They are reported to contract in the presence of 1 X 10-6 M angiotensin II. The cells form colonies in soft agar, and are positive for SV40 large T antigen.

Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is 3:1 mixture of ATCC-formulated Dulbecco's Modified Eagle's Medium, Catalog No. 30-2002 and Ham's F12 medium with 14 mM HEPES.To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 5%.
Subculturing
Volumes are given for a 75 cm2 flask. Increase or decrease the amount of dissociation medium needed proportionally for culture vessels of other sizes.
  1. Remove and discard culture medium.
  2. Briefly rinse the cell layer with 0.25% (w/v) Trypsin- 0.53 mM EDTA solution to remove all traces of serum that contains trypsin inhibitor.
  3. Add 2.0 to 3.0 mL of Trypsin-EDTA solution to flask and observe cells under an inverted microscope until cell layer is dispersed (usually within 5 to 15 minutes).
    Note: To avoid clumping do not agitate the cells by hitting or shaking the flask while waiting for the cells to detach. Cells that are difficult to detach may be placed at 37°C to facilitate dispersal.
  4. Add 6.0 to 8.0 mL of complete growth medium and aspirate cells by gently pipetting.
  5. Add appropriate aliquots of the cell suspension to new culture vessels.
  6. Incubate cultures at 37°C.
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:4 to 1:10 is recommended
Medium Renewal: Every 2 to 3 days
Cryopreservation
Freeze medium: Complete growth medium 95%; DMSO, 5%
Storage temperature: liquid nitrogen vapor phase
