Cell Line Origin

Human Caucasian glioblastoma

Cell Line Description

Derived from glioblastoma multiform tumour from a 61-year-old Caucasian male. Indefinite lifespan and anchorage independent but can enter viable G1 arrested state when deprived of serum.

Application

Studies on the mechanism for cessation of proliferation in quiescent cells and cells synchronised in G1 phase.
T98G has been used to study the effects of the lysosomal destabilizing drug Siramesine on glioblastoma. It has also been used to study the efficiency of empty spiracles homeobox 2 (EMX2) in suppressing glioblastoma.

Culture Medium

EMEM (EBSS) + 2mM Glutamine + 1% Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAA) + 1% Sodium Pyruvate (NaP) + 10% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS).

Subculture Routine

Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:3 to 1:6 i.e. seeding at 2-4x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37°C. Cells may become anchorage-independent if deprived of serum.
