Description

Cell Line Origin

Human Caucasian colon adenocarcinoma

Cell Line Description

Isolated from a primary colonic tumour in a 72-year-old Caucasian male using the explant culture technique. Forms moderately well differentiated adenocarcinomas consistent with colonic primary grade II, in nude mice.

Application

CACO-2 Cell Line human has been used:
• to study if components of the sigma B regulon in Listeria monocytogenes contribute to cell invasion
• for functional analysis of bacteriocin divercin AS7
• to study the intracellular invasion by Listeria ivanovii
• to study the effect of Maslinic acid, a pentacyclic triterpene, on colon cancer cell lines

Culture Medium

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

Subculture Routine

Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:3 to 1:6 i.e. seeding at 2-4x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% Trypsinor Trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37°C. NB: During routine subculture the cells should always be subcultured before they achieve confluence. Cells may show the appearance of circular vacuoles in the cytoplasm. These may increase in frequency as the culture density increases to confluence. To reduce their frequency, media change confluent cultures after 2-3 days if not subcultured. Cells can clump if not separated into a single cell suspension when split.
