DescriptionSpecies: human; Tissue: kidney, embryonic; Transformed by: adenovirus 5
DepositorObtained from ECACC
Reference paperJ Gen Virol 1977;36:59-74 - DOI: 10.1099/0022-1317-36-1-59 - PMID: 886304
Morphology and growthcontinuous culture, grown as monolayer, morphology epithelial-like
Culture conditionsDMEM + 10% FBS + 2mM L-Glutamine + 1% non-essential amino acids; Split cultures 1:3-1:6 using trypsin/EDTA; 37°C, 5% CO2. The viability may be low after thawing and the cells may take up to 7 days to attach. The cells should be frozen at not less than 8 x 10^6 /ampoule and thawed with 20% FBS
DistributionCell line available for distribution. For non-commercial investigative use only
HazardHandle as Biosafety Level 2 containment
Freezing medium90% FBS + 10% DMSO
Validation assaysIdentification confirmed by Short Tandem Repeat (STR) profile.
Multiplex PCR: tested against human, rat, mouse primers. Confirmed as human with cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (cox I) primers
