Disease medulallary carcinoma
Age 44 years adult

Karyotype modal number =52 to 54; range = 52 to 69.
Most of the karyotypes had three normal X chromosomes. Normal chromosomes N1, N5, N13, N14, N15, N16, N19, and N22 were not found. Seventeen marker chromosomes were identified: t(10q14q) der(12)t(1;12)(q21;p13), der(7)t(7;?)(q22;?), del(1)(q11), t(3qter>3q21::10p15>10qter), 7q+, del(5)(q13), 19q+, t(10q;14q), der(4)t(1;4)(q21;q25), 9q+, 13p+, 15p+ unknown, unknown, unknown, del(6)(q21). Marker chromosome M1 is similar to that described by Q.V. Cruciger, et al., Cytogenet. Cell Genet. 17: 231, 1976.
Derivation
The method for derivation of this line was similar in detail to that for ATCC HTB-23.
Clinical Data

female
Antigen Expression
Antigen expression: Blood Type B; Rh-
Tumorigenic Yes
Effects
Yes, in nude mice and in immunosuppressed BALB/c mice
Comments
The cells express the WNT7B oncogene. RefHuguet EL, et al. Differential expression of human Wnt genes 2, 3, 4, and 7B in human breast cell lines and normal and disease states of human breast tissue. Cancer Res. 54: 2615-2621, 1994. PubMed: 8168088 
Desmosomes, microvilli and tonofilaments were observed at boundaries between cells.
Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated Leibovitz's L-15 Medium, Catalog No. 30-2008. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10%.

(Note: The L-15 medium formulation was devised for use in a free gas exchange with atmospheric air. A CO2 and air mixture is detrimental to cells when using this medium for cultivation)


Subculturing
Volumes used in this protocol are for 75 sq cm flasks; proportionally reduce or increase amount of dissociation medium for culture vessels of other sizes.
  1. Remove and discard culture medium.
  2. Briefly rinse the cell layer with Ca++/Mg++ free Dulbecco's phosphate-buffered saline (D-PBS) or 0.25% (w/v) Trypsin - 0.53 mM EDTA solution to remove all traces of serum which 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. Transfer cell suspension to a centrifuge tube and spin at approximately 125 X g for 5 to 10 minutes. Discard supernatant.
  5. Resuspend the cell pellet in fresh growth medium. Add appropriate aliquots of the cell suspension to new culture vessels.
  6. Incubate cultures at 37°C in air atmosphere.
Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:2 to 1:3 is recommended
