Cell Line Origin

Rat Wistar-Furth pituitary tumour

Cell Line Description

Derived from a 7 month female Wistar-Furth rat. GH3 cells produce growth hormone faster than the GH1 cell line and also produce prolactin. Hydrocortisone stimulates growth hormone production and inhibits prolactin production. Studies have shown that cells are capable of adaptation to suspension culture using MEM.

Application

Hormone studies

Culture Medium

Ham′s F10 + 2mM Glutamine + 15% Horse Serum (HS) + 2.5% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS).

Subculture Routine

Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:2 to 1:4 i.e. seeding at 2-4x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37°C. Upon thawing, the time taken before the first subculture can be performed may be extended (10-15 days). To aid attatchment, flask
