Cell Line Origin

Mouse DBA/2 lymphoid neoplasm derivative; drug resistant

Cell Line Description

The cell line Pr8/22 has been derived from P388, a methylcholanthrene-induced lymphoid neoplasm originating in DBA/2 mouse and converted to ascitic form in the first mouse transfer. Pr8/22 is resistant to daunorubicin and is multi drug resistant (MDR). Cells should be treated with the drug at least once a month and before freezing, however after resuscitating daunorubicin should not be added until the first passage. It is advisable to keep a backup culture which is not drug-challenged.


Study of drug-resistance

Culture Medium

RPMI 1640 + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Horse Serum (HS); treat once a month with 0.1μM Daunorubicin

Subculture Routine

Maintain cultures between 3-9 x 100,000 cells/ml; 5% CO2; 37°C. It is recommended to culture the cells without drug upon resuscitation until the first passage
