Cell Line Description

This cell line is an Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) transformed lymphoblastoid line and is part of the Human Leukocyte Antigen (HLA) Typed Collection maintained by the European Collection of Cell Cultures (ECACC). HLA-Typing Data is available for this cell line.

DNA Profile

A: 0201 3201
Cw: 0602 0304
B: 2708 1501
HLA DRB1: 15 11
HLA DQB1: 05 03

Serological Profile

Bw4/bw6: 6

Culture Medium

RPMI 1640 (R0883) + 2mM Glutamine (G7513) + 20% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS) (F2442). Once a growing culture is established the FBS concentration can be reduced to 10%.

Subculture Routine

Maintain cultures between 3x105 - 2x106 cells/ml, 5% CO2, 37 °C. Upon resuscitation remove cryoprotectant - centrifuge at 300 x g for 5 minutes and re-suspend the cell pellet in fresh culture medium.
