General description

MCF10A CELLS CDH1 (-/-) are pre-neoplastic mammary epithelial cells from a human adult female with a ZFN knock out modification.
This cell line corresponds to ATCC Catalog No. CRL-10317.


Cell freezing medium-DMSO 1X, Cat. No. C6164
Media renewal changes two to three times per week.
Rapidly thaw vial by gentle agitation in 37°C water bath (~2 minutes), keeping vial cap out of the water. Decontaminate with 70% ethanol, add 9 mL culture media and centrifuge 125 x g (5-7 minutes). Resuspend in complete culture media and incubate at 37°
The base medium for this cell line is Dulbecco′s Modified Eagle′s Medium/Ham′s Nutrient Mixture F-12, Cat. No. 51448C. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: horse serum, Cat No. H1270, to a final concentration (v/v) of 5%; cholera toxin, Cat No. C8052, to a final concentration of 1 ng/mL; human insulin, Cat No. I9278, to a final concentration of 10 ug/mL; epidermal growth factor, Cat No. E9644, to a final concentration of 10 ng/mL; and hydrocortisone, Cat No. H6909, to a final concentration of 0.5 ug/mL.

Features and Benefits

These MCF10A cells are adherent with a doubling time of approx. 48 hours
Zinc finger nuclease (ZFN) knockout on chromosome 16q22.1


Tested for Mycoplasma, sterility, post-freeze viability, short terminal repeat (STR) analysis for cell line identification, cytochrome oxidase I (COI) analysis for cell line species confirmation.

The cell-cell adhesion protein E-cadherin (CDH1) is a tumor suppressor that is required to maintain cell adhesion, cell polarity and cell survival signalling. Somatic mutations in CDH1 are common in diffuse gastric cancer (DGC) and lobular breast cancer (LBC). In

Germline inactivating variants of CDH1 are causative of hereditary diffuse gastric cancer (HDGC), a cancer syndrome characterized by an increased risk of both diffuse gastric cancer and lobular breast cancer. Because loss of function mutations are difficult to target therapeutically

E-cadherin is an adherens junction protein that forms homophilic intercellular contacts in epithelial cells while also interacting with the intracellular cytoskeletal networks. It has roles including establishment and maintenance of cell polarity, differentiation, migration and signalling in cell proliferation pathways.

The CDH1 gene, encoding the cell adhesion protein E-cadherin, is one of the most frequently mutated genes in gastric cancer and inactivating germline CDH1 mutations are responsible for the cancer syndrome hereditary diffuse gastric cancer (HDGC). CDH1-deficient gastric cancers exhibit

Inactivating germline mutations in the CDH1 gene (encoding the E-cadherin protein) are the genetic hallmark of hereditary diffuse gastric cancer (HDGC), and somatic CDH1 mutations are an early event in the development of sporadic diffuse gastric cancer (DGC) and lobular
