Cell Line Origin

Mouse SIM strain embryonic fibroblast

Cell Line Description

SNL 76/7 clonally-derived from a STO cell line that expresses both G418 resistance and leukaemic inhibitory factor (LIF). The STO cell line was transfected with a G418-resistance cassette, RV4.0 (Thomas and Capecchi 1987), and a LIF expression construct (Williams et al., 1988). This cell line can be used as a feeder layer to support the growth of mouse embryonic stem cells. Inclusion of G418 in the media is not necessary for normal cell growth.

Culture Medium

Knockout D-MEM (Invitrogen) + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS)

Subculture Routine

Split confluent cultures 1:5-1:15 i.e. seeding at 2-4x10,000 cells/cm2 using trypsin/EDTA;5% CO2; 37°C.

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.
