MSDS_U-118 MG.pdf
Designation:U-118 MG
Organism:Homo sapiens (human)
Age/Stage:50 years old
Celltype:glioblastoma (classified as grade IV as of 2007)
Growth Properties:monolayer
Description:This is one of a number of cell lines derived from malignant gliomas (see also U-87 MG, U-138 MG and U-373 MG) by J. Ponten and associates from 1966 to 1969.
Culture Medium:DMEM supplemented with 4.5g/L glucose, 2mM L-glutamine and 10% fetal bovine serum (MG-30, CLS order number 820300).
Subculturing:Remove medium and rinse the adherent cells using PBS without calcium and magnesium (3-5 ml PBS for T25, 5-10ml for T75 cell culture flasks). Add Accutase (1-2ml per T25, 2.5ml per T75 cell culture flask), the cell sheet must be covered completely. Incubate at 37°C for 10 minutes. Carefully resuspend the cells, the addition of medium is optional but not necessary, and dispense into new flasks which contain fresh medium.
Split Ratio:A ratio of 1:3 to 1:6 is recommended
Fluid Renewal:2 to 3 times weekly
Freeze Medium:CM-1 (CLS order number: 800125, 25ml, 800150, 50ml)
Sterility:Tests for mycoplasma, bacteria and fungi were negative
Biosafety Level:1
Tumorigenic:yes, in nude mice
Karyotype:The line has a near pentaploid chromosome number and a wide range of chromosome number distribution (40% of the cells had numbers ranging from 110 to 115). The following 14 markers were found in most metaphases: t(1p,2p), t(3p,?), t(4p,11q), t(7p,22q), M6, t(9q,?), i(11q)18q t(10q,?), M14, M15, M16, M17 and t(10q,22q); 6 of these were found in some and 10 were seen in one only. Normal chromosomes 7, 8, 12, 19, 20 and 22 had 5 to 6 copies per cell; the X had two copies and the Y was absent.
