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.

Depositor and originator: Prof OS Pettengill and Dr DS Longnecker, Dartmouth Medical School, Lebanon, NH

Application

Study of exocrine pancreas carcinomas, hormone secretion studies.

Cell Line Origin

Mouse pancreatic islet cell tumour

Culture Medium

DMEM:Ham′s F12 (1:1) + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS) (Heat Inactivated).

Subculture Routine

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

Cell Line Description

TGP 54 has been isolated from an islet tumour arising in the pancreas of a transgenic Tg (E1a-1-SV40E)Bri8 mouse. These mice carry a pseudogene construct composed of a pancreatic-specific elastase-1 promoter linked to the SV40T antigen and thereby represent an animal model for pancreatic carcinogenesis. TGP 54 cells are SV40T antigen positive and secrete low amounts of somatostatin, it is one of a series of cells obtained from pancreatic tumours deposited at ECACC.
