Cell Line Origin

Human leukaemic T cell lymphoblast

Cell Line Description

Derived from Jurkat FHCRC. An IL-2 producing cell line, derived by incubating the cells at 41°C for 48 hours followed by a limiting dilution cloning over macrophages.


IL-2 assay and cloning studies
Jurkat E6.1 cell line has been used to:
  • study cell-independent/vector-free delivery of bovine serum albumin-fluorescein conjugate
  • determine the cytotoxicity of the cytolethal distending toxin (CDT) holotoxin and its components
  • study the expression of bisphenol A exposed estrogen receptor-β (ERβ) and estrogen-related-receptor-α (ERRα) in vitro

Culture Medium

RPMI 1640 + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS).

Subculture Routine

Maintain cultures between 3-9x100,000 cells/ml; 5% CO2; 37°C. On resuscitation single cells can be observed, during culture most cells will grow as aggregates.
