Mammalian cell lines were widely used as a source for cell line development in 2014, owing to associated advantages such as accurate complex protein expression nature, critical for the production of monoclonal antibodies, vaccines, and biologics.
After testing more than 15,000 stem cell lines, CLG found that 20 percent showed aneuploidy, and 60 to 70 percent of those were mosaic.
Many scientists refuse to test the cell lines that they use, preferring to ignore the problem.
Using microarray technology, which enables the simultaneous analysis of thousands of different DNA sequences, the Scripps Research team created a large database of information about all the genes that are active in hundreds of normal human embryonic and induced pluripotent stem cells and a variety of non-pluripotent cell lines.
2] Increasing numbers of journals, notably Biotechniques, Cancer Research, and In Vitro Cellular and Developmental Biology now require authentication on all cell lines used in studies submitted for publication.
Vero E6, Rhabdomyosarcoma (RD) and Porcine stable kidney (PS) cell lines were maintained in DMEM (Earle's) medium supplemented with 10 per cent foetal bovine serum (FBS) (Gibco, BRL, USA).
NYSE Amex: BTX) today announced an agreement with the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine (CIRM) to make five clinical-grade human embryonic stem (hES) cell lines available to California-based researchers.
As we progress and surpass each of our research objectives for our proprietary cell line - which, to-date has performed beyond our expectations - we move closer and closer to making the development of an artificial liver device a reality for the millions of individuals who suffer from liver disease.
The current study builds upon previous research showing that separate breast cancer cell lines have distinctive responses to two different chemotherapeutic agents, doxorubicin (DOX) and 5-fluorouracil (5FU).
The gene was mutated, missing, or otherwise disabled in slightly more than half the lab-grown breast cancer cell lines tested, says study coauthor Masaaki Hamaguchi, a cancer geneticist at Cold Spring Harbor The cell lines represent roughly 90 percent of breast cancer cases, he says.
Embryome Sciences will initially select 10 RGI hES cell lines, and may add additional cell lines at its option.
