KARPAS 1718 Cell Line

Invented by Abraham Karpas

Info

Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets Human splenic lymphoma
Host Human
Tissue Blood
Disease Keywords Cancer; haemotology; lymphoma
Relevance The KARPAS 1718 cell line is derived from transformed splenic lymphoma with villous lymphocytes; useful in oncology research.
Production Details Derived from the peripheral blood of a patient diagnosed with transformed splenic lymphoma with villous lymphocytes.
Research Area Cancer, Drug Discovery & Development
Growth/Phenotype Keywords Single round to polymorphic cells growing in suspension
Recommended Growing Conditions Maintain cultures between 3-9 x 105 cells/ml; 5% CO2; 37°C. Thaw ampoule and perform a cell count, spin out the DMSO and resuspend in an appropriate volume of media to give a cell concentration of 4-5 x 105 cells/ml. Viability may be poor on resuscitation and may decrease further within the first 48 hours, the culture may appear non-viable at this time. Clusters of cells will eventually appear but this could take 1-2 weeks, during this time large media changes are not recommended. It may take 2-3 weeks for vigorous growth to be established. At subculture perform a cell count and maintain cultures between 3-9 x 105 cells/ml, 5% CO2, 37°c. For cryopreservation of KARPAS 1718, freeze at approximately 2 x 107 cells/ml in 90% FBS + 10% DMSO.Culture medium: RPMI 1640 + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS).
