General Cell Collection Detail

ECACC General Cell Collection: CMT 64

Supplied by: European Collection of Authenticated Cell Cultures (ECACC)
Culture Type: Cell line
Collection: ECACC General Collection
Catalogue No.: 10032301
Cell Line Name: CMT 64
Citation Guidance: If use of this culture results in a scientific publication, it should be cited in the publication as: CMT 64 (ECACC 10032301)
Keywords: Mouse lung carcinoma; metastasis
Cell Line Description: CMT 64 was isolated from a primary alveogenic lung carcinoma tumour mass in C57BL/lcrf mouse, achieving stable morphology and growth rate in culture, similar to the growth rate and morphology in the primary tumour, and in lung metastasis induced after subcutaneous inoculation of mice. CMT 64 cells can be maintained in completely defined serum-free medium. Tumours derived from tissue culture cells grown in serum-free and serum-containing medium can form lung metastases in appropriate animal host.
Species: Mouse
Tissue of Origin: Lung
CellType: Epithelial, closely packed sheets at confluence
Growth Mode: Adherent
Karyotype: Modal chromosome number 85
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.

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.
