Derivation
The J.CaM1.6 cell line is a derivative mutant of Jurkat. The Jurkat cell line was established from the peripheral blood of a 14 year old boy by Schneider et al., and was originally designated JM. The J.CaM1.6 line was derived from the E6-1 clone of Jurkat (ATCC TIB-152) by treatment with ethylmethanesulfonate (EMS). Cells were then selected for T cell antigen receptor (TCR) expression and inability to increase intracellular calcium in response to TCR stimulation with OKT3 antibody.
Clinical Data
male
14 years
Comments CD3/T1 complexes are present; however, TCR signal transduction is defective. They are deficient in lck kinase activity and are missing exon 7 in their lck mRNA. The T cell antigen receptor appears to be structurally normal.
Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated RPMI-1640 Medium, Catalog No. 30-2001. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10%.
Subculturing
Cultures can be maintained by the addition of fresh medium or replacement of medium. Alternatively, cultures can be established by centrifugation with subsequent resuspension at 2 X 105 viable cells/mL. Maintain cell density between 2 X 105 and 2 X 106 viable cells/mL.
