Other Notes

Cultures from HPA Culture Collections and supplied by Sigma are for research purposes only. Enquiries regarding the commercial use of a cell line are referred to the depositor of the cell line. Some cell lines have additional special release conditions such as the requirement for a material transfer agreement to be completed by the potential recipient prior to the supply of the cell line. Please view the Terms & Conditions of Supply for more information.

Cell Line Origin

Human embryo kidney

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.

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.
