Cell Line Origin

A rat pancreatic Beta cell: RINm5F hybrid cell line. Insulin-secreting cell line

Cell Line Description

BRIN-BD11 is a hybrid cell line formed by the electrofusion of a primary culture of NEDH rat pancreatic islets with RINm5F (a cell line derived from a NEDH rat insuliinoma). BRIN-BD11 has been shown to be tumourigenic when transplanted into a SCID mouse host. BRIN-BD11 has been mycoplasma eradicated at ECACC and the stocks available for supply have undergone a further 10 passages without detection of mycoplasma. The cell line has applications in the study of pancreatic beta cell function.

Culture Medium

RPMI-1640 + 2 mM Glutamine + 10% FCS / FBS

Subculture Routine

Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:8 to 1:10 , i.e., seeding at 2-4 x 104 cells/cm2 using 0.05% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37 °C. Population doubling approx 20hrs. At confluence 105 cells/cm2 can be expected.
