MEF ULK1/2 WT(SV40) Cell Line

Invented by Dr Sharon Tooze at The Francis Crick Institute

Info

Catalogue Number 152607
Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets ULK1
Host Mouse
Tissue Embryo
Disease Keywords Cancer, neurodegeneration
Relevance The MEF ULK1/2 WT cell line can be used as a wild-type control with ULK1 and ULK2 cell lines and is useful for studying ULK1-and ULK-2 dependent processes, including autophagy. Mouse embryonic fibroblasts derived from a wild-type littermate to the ULK1 KO and immortalized with SV40 large T-antigen.
Production Details Cells were derived from mouse embryos at E13.5. Embryos were decapitated and eviscerated and the remaining tissues were dissociated to obtain MEFs. This cell line is a primary cell line immortalized by SV40.
Research Area Apoptosis and Programmed Cell Death, Cell Signaling & Signal Transduction, Metabolism, Neurobiology
Growth/Phenotype Keywords Autophagy
Recommended Growing Conditions DMEM + 20% FCS + 2mM Glutamine + pen/strep
Cellosaurus ID CVCL_5A51
