Cell Line Authentication & Quality Control Information

ECACC General Cell Collection: JU77

Supplied by: European Collection of Authenticated Cell Cultures (ECACC)
Culture Type: Cell line
Collection: ECACC General Collection
Catalogue No.: 10092309
Cell Line Name: JU77
Citation Guidance: If use of this culture results in a scientific publication, it should be cited in the publication as: JU77 (ECACC 10092309)
Keywords: Human malignant mesothelioma
Cell Line Description: This cell line was derived from the pleural fluid of a patient with malignant mesothelioma. The patient had known exposure to crocidolite asbestos. JU77 is not tumourigenic in nude mice. Cells express cytokeratin and epithelial membrane antigen (EMA) but not mucin. Cells are spindle shaped with few vacuoles. Cell Bank Australia reference number: CBA0140
Species: Human
Tissue of Origin: Lung
CellType: Epithelial-like: cells are spindle-shaped with few vacuoles. Upon confluence develop an epithelioid "cobblestone-like mat"
Growth Mode: Adherent
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.
