ECACC General Cell Collection: 54SCC2

Supplied by: European Collection of Authenticated Cell Cultures (ECACC)
Culture Type: Cell line
Collection: ECACC General Collection
Catalogue No.: 08062560
Cell Line Name: 54SCC2
Citation Guidance: If use of this culture results in a scientific publication, it should be cited in the publication as: 54SCC2 (ECACC 08062560)
Keywords: Rat glioma x mouse L cell fibroblast hybrid
Cell Line Description: Hybrid generated by fusion of bromodeoxyuridine-resistant mutant of rat glioma cell line C6 (C6-BU-1, ECACC catalogue number 08062563) and the 6-thioguanine-resistant mouse L cell fibroblast line A9 (ECACC catalogue number 08062526) using inactivated Sendai virus. Cells formed from such a fusion are multipolar and extend small processes.
Species: Mouse x rat hybrid
Tissue of Origin: Fibroblastic/glioma
CellType: oligopolar
Growth Mode: Adherent
Karyotype: Modal No. varied with passage see reference
Biosafety Information: Unless specified otherwise, at the European Collection of Authenticated Cell Cultures (ECACC) we routinely handle all of our cell lines at containment level 2 in accordance with the ACDP guidelines. ACDP = Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (UK)
All cell cultures have the potential to carry as yet unidentified adventitious agents. It is the responsibility of the end user to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

ACDP Guidance: Biological agents: Managing the risks in laboratories and healthcare premises.

Subculture Routine: Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:3 to 1:6 i.e. seeding at 2-4x10,000 cells/cm² using 0.05% trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37°C.
Culture Medium: DMEM + 2 mM glutamine + 10% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS) + HAT (0.1 mM hypoxanthine, 10 µM aminopterin and 16 µM thymidine) Cells can be cultured without HAT provided they were cultured in between in HT medium for 3-4 days

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. Please view the Terms & Conditions of Supply for more information.
