Cells - C17-2
Multipotent neural cell lines were generated via retrovirus-mediated v-myc transfer into murine cerebellar progenitor cells.
Morphology: undifferentiated cells appear epithelial with short extensions. FluidRenewal: twice weekly
SubCulturing: Remove medium, rinse cell sheet with 0.25% trypsin, and add 1 to 2ml of fresh trypsin. Let the flask sit at room temperature until the cells detach. Add fresh medium, aspirate and dispense into new flasks.
SplitRatio: A ratio of 1:3 to 1:6 is recommended
Growth Properties: monolayer
