Cell Line Origin

Tongue squamous carcinoma (lymph node metastasis)

Cell Line Description

Adherent cell line derived from a lymph node metastasis squamous cell carcinoma of the tongue of a Caucasian male. Keratin and involucrin markers present. Known mutations: p53, p16 and p14ARF. Cells are tumourigenic in athymic mice.

Application

Study of genotype/phenotype relationships

Culture Medium

DMEM + 2mM Glutamine + 2% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS) + 0.4 micrograms/ml Hydrocortisone.

Subculture Routine

Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:10 - 1:50 using 0.05% trypsin/EDTA; 8% CO2; 37 °C. Suggested seeding density 2 x 10,000 cells/cm2.

Culture cells on a feeder layer of lethally-irradiated or mitomycin C-treated 3T3 Swiss Albino cells (Sigma catalog number 85022108). Feeder layers are prepared in the flasks at least 24 h in advance of being required. Where frozen stocks of treated 3T3 Swiss Albino cells have been prepared, an ampoule is thawed in 37 °C water bath and the contents quickly transferred to a 15 ml centrifuge tube. DMEM medium is added drop wise to 5 ml. Cells are centrifuged at 150 x g for 5 min at room temperature. Cells are resuspended in 5 ml of medium. Cells are counted and added to flasks containing the correct BICR growth medium at 1-3 x 104 cells/cm2.
