Other Notes

Cultures from PHE 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.

Culture Medium

RPMI 1640 (R0883) + 10% Horse Serum + 2mM L-Glutamine (G7513) + 1.8 mMolar Sodium Pyruvate(NaP) (S8636). Cryopreserve cells in culture medium with cells heat-inactivated 10% Horse Serum and 10% Dimethyl sulphoxide (DMSO)

Culture cells in GMEM (G5154) + 10% FBS (F2442) + 2mM L-Glutamine (G7513), 2ng/ml Leukemia Inhibitory Factor (LIF) and 1mM 2ME (M6250) on gelatin-coated (0.1%) cell culture plastic.
Alternatively, ES cells can be cultured in 2i medium (iStem medium, Stem Cells, Inc) supplemented with 2ng/ml LIF and inhibitors of the ERK pathway and of GSK3?, (Ying QL 2008)

Subculture Routine

Cultures must be incubated in a humidified 10% CO2/90% air incubator at 37oC. Subculture with 0.05% Trypsin/EDTA and inoculate new cultures at 3 x 104 per cm2.

Dilute cell in fresh medium at 0.1- 1.5 x 105 cells per ml.

Cell Line Description

A mouse embryonic stem cell (ES) line (Nd) containing a novel fluorescent reporter (VNP) to investigate the temporal dynamics of Nanog expression in mouse and to dissect the lineage potential at different Nanog expression levels. This novel reporter ES cell line allows the accurate monitoring the dynamic expression of the transcription factor Nanog in the pluripotent state. The cell line will be a valuable tool to obtain quantitative measurements of global gene expression in pluripotent mouse ES cells in different states, allowing a detailed molecular mapping of the pluripotent state.

JCRBNo 1435, lot number 11032011. This line is a derivative of the WIL-2 lymphoblast cell line. The cells are heterozygous at the thymidine (TK) kinase locus and can be used to quantitatively detect forward mutations at 3 loci.
