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.

Application

SH-SY5Y cell line human is used for neurotransmitter studies
SH-SY5Y cell line human has been used to:
• study the iron-mediated toxicity of amyloid β peptide
• check the significance of anionic luminescent conjugated polythiophene (LCP) polythiophene acetic acid (PTAA) in vital staining of cells
• study the effect of haloperidol on sigma-1 receptors in guinea pig brain and human neuroblastoma cells

Culture Medium

Ham’s F12:EMEM (EBSS) (1:1) + 2mM Glutamine + 1% Non Essential Amino AcidsNEAA + 15% Foetal Bovine Serum FBS / FCS.

Subculture Routine

Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:10 to 1:100 i.e. seeding at 1x1,000-1x10,000 cells/cm2; using 0.25% Trypsin or Trypsin/EDTA, 5% CO2; 37°C. Cells may reattach slowly and may remain in suspension for several days. The loss of neuronal characteristics has been described with increasing passage numbers. Therefore it is recommended to verify specific characteristics such as noradrenalin uptake or neuronal markers routinely.

Cell Line Description

SH-SY5Y is a thrice-cloned sub-line of bone marrow biopsy-derived line SK-N-SH (Sigma catalogue no. 86012802). SH-SY-5Y has dopamine-β-hydroxylase activity and can convert glutamate to the neurotransmitter GABA. Will form tumours in nude mice in approximately 3-4 weeks. The loss of neuronal characteristics has been described with increasing passage numbers. Therefore it is recommended to verify specific characteristics such as noradrenalin uptake or neuronal markers routinely.
