UNSPSC Code: 12352200
Application: Virus susceptibility : influenza virus, vesicular stomatitis virus and many other viruses.
Cell Line Description: MDCK II - Madin-Darby canine kidney- is a subclone derived from the heterogenous parent line - MDCK (Sigma catalogue no. 85011435) MDCK II cells, which predominate in later passages from MDCK, are reported to display electrical resistance of 100 ohm/cm2. This strain is thought to be derived from the distal tubule or collecting duct of the nephron. The cell line can be used as an experimental model to study the generation and maintenance of cell surface polarity in epithelial cells. Mycoplasma eradicated using Boehringer method prior to deposit at ECACC.
Cell Line Origin: Canine Cocker Spaniel Kidney
Culture Medium: EMEM (EBSS) (M2279) + 2mM L-Glutamine (G7513) + 5% FBS (F2442)
Subculture Routine: Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:5 twice a week i.e. seeding at 5 x 10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% tryspin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2 37C,
Other Notes: Cultures from HPA Culture Collections and supplied by Sigma are for research purposes only. Enquiries regarding the commercial use of a cell line are referred to the depositor of the cell line. Some cell lines have additional special release conditions such as the requirement for a material transfer agreement to be completed by the potential recipient prior to the supply of the cell line. Please view the Terms & Conditions of Supply for more information.
