Product Format frozen 1.0 mL
Morphology epithelial
Culture Properties adherent
Biosafety Level 2

Biosafety classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

Applications Epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT), anti-EMT drug screening, breast cancer drug screening, E-cadherin expression dynamics.
Storage Conditions liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Comments Cells undergoing EMT often display downregulation of epithelial markers (such as E-cadherin; ECAD) and upregulation of mesenchymal markers (such as vimentin; VIM). Here, we created an ECAD-EmGFP reporter cell line (ATCC CRL-10317EMT) using the CRISPR/Cas9 gene editing platform and the parental MCF 10A (ATCC CRL-10317). The created CRL-10317EMT cell line harbors a C-terminal green fluorescent protein (EmGFP) tag on the E-cadherin gene. This will enable the tracking of the EMT status of cells in vitro by monitoring GFP expression. The integrity of the ECAD-EmGFP knock-in has been verified at the genomic, mRNA and protein level for sequence and expression. The MCF 10A ECAD-EmGFP reporter cell line provides a convenient and sensitive platform for research on the mechanisms of metastasis in vitro and the development of new antitumor drugs for metastatic breast cancer.
Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line (MEBM) along with the additives can be obtained from Lonza/Clonetics Corporation as a kit: MEGM, Kit Catalog No. CC-3150. ATCC does not use the GA-1000 (gentamycin-amphotericin B mix) provided with kit. To make the complete growth medium, you will need to add the following components to the kit (sold separately):
  • 100 ng/ml cholera toxin
Note: Do not filter complete medium
Subculturing
Volumes used in this protocol are for 75 cm2 flask; proportionally reduce or increase amount of dissociation medium for culture vessels of other sizes. Corning® T-75 flasks (catalog #430641) are recommended for subculturing this product.
  1. Remove medium and rinse monolayer with PBS (ATCC 30-2200) .
  2. Add 3.0 mL of 0.05% trypsin, 0.53 mM EDTA and incubate 37°C for 15 minutes. br />
  3. To neutralize trypsin, add 3 mL solution of 0.1% soybean trypsin inhibitor (ATCC 30-2104). br />
  4. Centrifuge cell suspension at 125 x g for 5 to 10 minutes. Resuspend cell pellet in complete culture medium br />
  5. Add appropriate aliquots of the cell suspension to new culture vessels.
    Subcultivation Ratio: A subcultivation ratio of 1:3 to 1:4 is recommended
    Medium Renewal: Every 2 to 3 days
Cryopreservation
Freeze medium: Complete growth medium supplemented with 7.5% (v/v) DMSO
Storage temperature: liquid nitrogen vapor phase


Note: Lots manufactured prior to 05/20/2020 may have used a different cryopreservative, contact customer service if needed.
