Derivation

The BCL2 (S87A) Jurkat cell line was derived by transfecting human Jurkat T cells with the pSFFV-neo mammalian expression vector containing the human BCL2 mutated ORF insert and a neomycin-resistant gene (Parental vector: Addgene # 3349). Bcl2 (S87A) stable neomycin (Neo)-resistant single-cell-originated clones were isolated and expanded by selection in medium containing 1 mg/mL G418 for 14 days.

Tumorigenic Yes
Comments

The BCL2 (S87A) Jurkat cell line was derived by transfecting human Jurkat T cells with the pSFFV-neo mammalian expression vector containing the human BCL2 mutated ORF insert and a neomycin-resistant gene (Parental vector: Addgene # 3349). 

The BCL2 (S87A) Jurkat cells contain the BCL2 ORF with a sub-mutation at Ser87, containing an amino-acid substitution to Ala87. Bcl2 (S87A) stable neomycin (Neo)-resistant single-cell-originated clones were isolated and expanded by selection in medium containing 1 mg/mL G418 for 14 days. The Bcl2 (S87A) Jurkat cell line overexpresses the S87A-mutated form of Bcl-2.

Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated RPMI-1640 Catalog No. 30-2001. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: 10% FBS and 200 mcg/mL G418.
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 1 x 105 viable cells/mL. Do not allow the cell density to exceed 3 x 106 cells/mL.

Subcultivation ratio: Maintain cultures at a cell concentration between 1 x 105 and 1 X 106 viable cells.
Medium renewal: Add fresh medium every 2 to 3 days (depending on cell density)
Cryopreservation Freeze medium: 90% Fetal Bovine Serum and 10% DMSO
Storage temperature: liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Culture Conditions Temperature: 37°C
Atmosphere: air, 95%; carbon dioxide (CO2), 5%
