MEF ULK1 KO (SIM) Cell Line
RECENTLY UPDATED

Invented by Dr Sharon Tooze from The Francis Crick Institute
Invented at Cancer Research UK London Research Institute: Lincoln's Inn Fields

Info

Catalogue Number 151715
Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets ULK1
Host Mouse
Tissue Embryo
Disease Keywords Cancer, neurodegeneration, infectious disease
Model Knock-Out
Relevance The MEF ULK1 KO (SIM) cell line can be used to study ULK1-dependent processes, including autophagy. A more complete phenotype requires depletion of ULK2 by RNAi . Mouse embryonic fibroblasts derived from a ULK1 homozygous knock out mouse embryo and immortalized by serial passaging (spontaneous transformation).
Production Details Primary embryonic fibroblasts were isolated from the embryos of a pregnant female Ulk1-/- mouse at day 13p.c. The MEFs were immortalised by SIM using a standard serial passaging protocol.
Research Area Apoptosis and Programmed Cell Death, Cell Signaling & Signal Transduction, Metabolism, Neurobiology
Growth/Phenotype Keywords Autophagy, fibroblast
Recommended Growing Conditions DMEM + 20% FCS + 2mM Glutamine + pen/strep
Cellosaurus ID CVCL_5A52
