Organism Mus musculus, mouse
Tissue thymus
Cell Type T lymphocyte
Product Format frozen
Morphology lymphoblast
Culture Properties suspension
Biosafety Level 1
Disease lymphoma
Strain AKR/J
Storage Conditions liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Derivation
This line is a clone of the BW5147 cell line which was established from a spontaneous AKR/J thymoma.
Antigen Expression
H-2k; Thy-1.1
Comments

The cells are HAT resistant but sensitive to 0.001 mM cortisol and to 25 mcg/mL PHA.

Tested and found negative for ectromelia virus (mousepox).
Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated Dulbecco's Modified Eagle's Medium, Catalog No. 30-2002. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: horse serum to a final concentration of 10%.
Subculturing Cultures can be maintained by addition of fresh medium. Alternatively, cultures can be established by centrifugation with subsequent resuspension at 1 x 10viable cells/mL. Maintain cultures at a cell concentration between 1 x 105 and 1 x 10cells/mL. Do not allow the cell concentration to exceed 2 x 10cells/mL.
Medium Renewal: Add fresh medium every 2 to 3 days (depending on cell density).
Cryopreservation
Complete growth medium 95%; DMSO, 5%. Cell culture tested DMSO is available as ATCC Catalog No. 4-X.

Culture Conditions
Temperature: 37°C
Atmosphere: 5% CO2
