Cell Line Origin

Human embryo kidney

Cell Line Description

The cell line HH-8 was generated by transfecting a vector (pcDNA3) containing a truncated calcium channel cDNA into (HEK) 293 cells (ECACC catalogue no. 85120602). The vector is constituitively expressed in the HH-8 cells producing a truncated (at amino acid 1733) cardiac α 1c-a calcium channel.

Culture Medium

EMEM (EBSS) + 2mM Glutamine + 1% Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAA) + 10% FBS + 200 μg/ml Geneticin

Subculture Routine

Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:2 to 1:3 i.e. seeding at 3-5x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin, trypsin/EDTA, or PBS wash, 5% CO2; 37°C. Cells may take up to 7 days to attach after resuscitation and sub culture. Cells grow in large aggregates that do not grow to confluency. Cells detach easily at room temperature or during transit, therefore growing cultures may be received with cells in suspension. In this event, centrifuge contents of flask and re-seed to allow re-attachment of cells.

Stable cell lines are potentially excellent tools for large-scale screening of new compounds. Two carboxyterminal-deleted constructs of the two splice variants a and b of the calcium channel class C alpha 1 subunit were expressed stably in HEK 293 cells.

Facilitation of calcium current by depolarizing prepulses has been observed in many cells including cardiac muscle. The mechanism underlying prepulse facilitation is controversial with respect to the requirements of channel subunits and cAMP kinase. We found that coexpression of the
