Cell Line Origin

Human glioblastoma astrocytoma

Cell Line Description

A human glioblastoma astrocytoma derived from a malignant tumour by explant technique. This catalogue entry represents a new deposit of U-373 MG obtained from the originator′s laboratory in Uppsala; it has been designated U-373 MG (Uppsala) to distinguish it from U-373 MG (Sigma Catalogue number 89081403) which is now known to be identical, by Short Tandem Repeat (STR)-PCR profiling, to another glioblastoma cell line, U-251 MG (please read below for more information about this discovery). U-373 MG (Uppsala) has been mycoplasma eradicated at ECACC and the stocks available for supply have undergone a further 10 passages without detection of mycoplasma.
Background to the identity query for the cell line U-373 MG: The American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) reported that their stock of U-373 MG had been shown to have differing genetic properties to stock from the originator′s laboratory, and to share similarities with another glioblastoma cell line, U-251. In light of this, ECACC undertook an investigation into the authenticity of its own stock of the U-373 MG cell line. ECACC found similar results to the ATCC i.e. the stock held as U-373 MG was found to be identical by STR-PCR profiling to U-251. The U-373 MG cell line listed under catalogue number 89081403 has been re-named as ′U-251 (formerly known as U-373 MG)′.
