Cell Line Authentication & Quality Control Information

General Cell Collection: CHO-K1

Catalogue No.: 85051005
Cell Line Name: CHO-K1
Keywords: Hamster Chinese ovary
Cell Line Description: A subclone of the parental CHO cell line, which was derived from the ovary of an adult Chinese hamster. Cells require proline due to the absence of the gene for proline synthesis, the block in the biosynthetic chain lies in the step converting glutamic acid to glutamine gamma serialdehyde. They undergo morphological changes in response to cholera toxin.
Species: Hamster
Tissue: Ovary
Morphology: Epithelial

Subculture Routine: Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:4 to 1:10 i.e. seeding at 1-2x10,000 cells/cm² using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37°C.
Culture Medium: Ham's F12 + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS).
Karyotype: Hypodiploid, modal no. 20

The Culture Collections represent deposits of cultures from world-wide sources. While every effort is made to ensure details distributed by Culture Collections are accurate, Culture Collections cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in the data supplied. References where quoted are mainly attributed to the establishment of the cell culture and not for any specific property of the cell line, therefore further references should be obtained regarding cell culture characteristics. Passage numbers where given act only as a guide and Culture Collections does not guarantee the passage number stated will be the passage number received by the customer.

Cultures supplied by Culture Collections 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.
