Cell Line Origin

Rat glioma

Cell Line Description

The glioma cell line A10-85 is a subclone of A10 cells which originally emerged from the parent line IA2 by reducing the serum concentration from 15% to 10%. This parent line IA2 was derived from a rat brain glioma induced transplacentally by ethylnitroso urea (inbred BDIxrats). A10-85 cells form processes in response to cAMP. GAPDH can be induced by hydrocortisone succinate and good growth was obtained in semi-solid medium. Injection of cells into syngeneric animals resulted in the formation of malignant astrocytic tumours after short latent periods.

Culture Medium

DMEM + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS).
