Comments This luciferase expressing cell line was derived from parental line ATCC CRL-2003 by transduction with lentiviral vector encoding firefly luciferase gene (luc2) under control of EF-1 alpha promoter. This cell line was established through single cell cloning, and the cells constitutively express high levels of enzymatically active luciferase protein, which can be detected via in vitro and in vivo bioluminescence assays. The cells should be maintained in Blasticidin (8 µg/mL) containing medium in routine cell culture. It is recommended to remove Blasticidin prior to and during the experiment procedure when the cells are injected into animals in vivo, or co-cultured with other cell types in vitro.
Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is RPMI-1640 Medium (ATCC 30-2001). To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium:
  • 2 ng/ml recombinant human GM-CSF
  • Fetal Bovine Serum (FBS; ATCC 30-2020) to a final concentration of 10%
  • Blasticidin to a final concentration of 8µg/mL
Subculturing
Cultures can be maintained by addition or replacement of fresh medium. Start cultures at 2 X 104 cells/mL and maintain between 3 X 104 and 5 X 105 cells/mL.

Medium Renewal: Add fresh medium every 2 to 3 days (depending on cell density).
Cryopreservation Complete growth medium supplemented with 5% (v/v) DMSO (ATCC 4-X)
