Cell Line Origin
Human oral squamous cell carcinoma, tongue
Cell Line Description
Established from a squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the tongue (20mm) of a 74 year-old male patient. STNMP stage I, well differentiated, node negative tumour. Mutant p53, codon 110 exon 4, G to A; the previously reported mutant Ha-ras status of this cell line: codon: 13, G to A, codon 61, A-G is under investigation. This cell line is highly responsive to TGF (Transforming growth factor )-β and undergoes epithelial to mesenchymal transition. It expresses high levels of TGF-β1. Fahey et al (1996). Tumourigenic in athymic nude mice on subcutaneous injection and non-tumorigenic on orthotopic injection. Haplotype information: A*02,A*31; B*40,B*44; Cw*03,Cw*05
DMEM:HAMS F12 (1:1) + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS) + 0.5 ug/ml sodium hydrocortisone succinate
Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%), approximately every 5-6 days, 1:8 to 1:10 using 0.25% trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37°C. Suggested seeding density 5 x 1000 cells/cm2. Cells can take approximately 10 minutes to detach, an alternative is to trypsinise 2
