Application

Plaque assay and virus studies: Rous sarcoma virus, MuLV

Cell Line Origin

Rat Wistar sarcoma

Culture Medium

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

Subculture Routine

Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:2 to 1:6 i.e. seeding at 2-5x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin; 5% CO2; 37°C.

Cell Line Description

Original tumour induced in outbred Wistar rats by intramuscular injection of Rous sarcoma virus. The cells have virus genome but do not normally release infectious virus. The XC plaque assay is an indirect method of detection for MuLV in cultured cells.
