Description

Cell Line Origin

Hamster Chinese ovary

Cell Line Description

Derived from parent line CHO-K1. Cells were exposed to increasing concentrations of compactin over 8 months. During this exposure the level of 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase synthesis increased 500-fold. The enzyme controls cholesterol synthesis.

Application

Enzymatic studies

Culture Medium

Ham′s F12 + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS).

Subculture Routine

Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:3 to 1:10 i.e. seeding at 1-3x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37°C.
