Derivation
The Jurkat cell line was established from the peripheral blood of a 14 year old boy by Schneider et al., and was originally designated JM.
The line was cloned from cells obtained from Dr. Kendall Smith and are mycoplasma free.
This is a clone of the Jurkat-FHCRC cell line, a derivative of the Jurkat cell line.
Clinical Data
male
The Jurkat cell line was established from the peripheral blood of a 14 year old boy by Schneider et al.
Antigen Expression
Antigen expression: CD3; Homo sapiens, expressed
Receptor Expression

Receptor expression: T cell antigen receptor, expressed

Genes Expressed
interleukin-2 (interleukin 2, IL-2),CD3; Homo sapiens, expressed
Comments
Clone E6-1 cells produce large amounts of IL-2 after stimulation with phorbol esters and either lectins or monoclonal antibodies against the T3 antigen (both types of stimulants are needed to induce IL-2 production.
Complete Growth Medium The base medium for this cell line is ATCC-formulated RPMI-1640 Medium, Catalog No. 30-2001. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10%.
Subculturing
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 1 x 105 viable cells/mL. Do not allow the cell density to exceed 3 X 106 cells/mL.
Interval: Maintain cultures at a cell concentraion between between 1 x 105 and 1 X 106 viable cells/mL.
Medium Renewal: Add fresh medium every 2 to 3 days (depending on cell density)
Cryopreservation
Freeze medium: Complete growth medium supplemented with 5% (v/v) DMSO
