Comments
This line was derived from a leukemia induced by N-tropic Friend murine leukemia virus.
The cells are negative for surface immunoglobulin (sIg-) and Thy-1.2 (Thy-1.2-).
Erythroid differentiation and hemoglobin synthesis are NOT inducible by DMSO.
Tested and found negative for ectromelia virus (mousepox).
Complete Growth Medium RPMI 1640 medium with 2 mM L-glutamine adjusted to contain 1.5 g/L sodium bicarbonate, 4.5 g/L glucose, 10 mM HEPES, and 1.0 mM sodium pyruvate and supplemented with 0.01 mM 2-mercaptoethanol, 90%; heat-inactivated fetal bovine serum, 10%
Subculturing
Protocol: Cultures can be maintained by addition or replacement of fresh medium. Start cultures at 2 X 10(5) cells/ml and maintain between 1 X 10(5) and 1 X 10(6) cells/ml.
The cells may also be grown as ascites in syngeneic mice. Inject 2 X 10(5) cell per mouse and harvest as soon as abdominal enlargement is observed (about 10 days).
Medium Renewal: Every 2 to 3 days
Cryopreservation
Freeze medium: Complete growth medium supplemented with 5% (v/v) DMSO
Storage temperature: liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Culture Conditions
Temperature: 37.0°C
Name of Depositor B Chesebro
