Disclosure This material is cited in a US or other Patent and may not be used to infringe the claims. Depending on the wishes of the Depositor, ATCC may be required to inform the Patent Depositor of the party to which the material was furnished. This material may not have been produced or characterized by ATCC.
Comments
The line is free of major oncogenic avian viruses.
The cells are pathogenic in chickens but fluids are not.
The cells grow well at 41C.
Complete Growth Medium A 1:1 mixture of Leibovitz's L-15 medium and McCoy's 5a medium with 2 mM L-glutamine, 55%; tryptose phosphate broth, 5%; chicken serum, 20%; fetal bovine serum, 20% The fetal bovine serum concentration may be reduced to 10% after the cells have been in culture for 10 to 14 days.
Subculturing
Medium Renewal: Every 2 to 3 days
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 5 X 10 exp5 viable cells/ml.
Maintain cultures at cell concentrations between 5 X 10 exp5 and 2 X 10 exp6 viable cells/ml.
Cryopreservation
Culture medium, 90%; DMSO, 10%
Culture Conditions
Temperature: 41.0°C
Atmosphere: air, 95%; carbon dioxide (CO2), 5%
