Description

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.

Culture Medium

EMEM (EBSS) + 2mM Glutamine + 1% Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAA) + 10% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS).

Subculture Routine

Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:5 to 1:10 i.e. seeding at 1-2x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37°C.

Cell Line Description

Although originally described as a colon adenocarcinoma line established from a 78 year old female, DNA fingerprinting has shown this line to be a derivative of HT-29. HT29 was isolated from a primary colon adenocarcinoma in a 44 year old Caucasian female. The cells produce carcinoembryonic antigen and are tumorigenic in xenogeneic animals. They have been used in studies of anti-tumour agents.
