General Cell Collection Detail

ECACC General Cell Collection: MOR/0.2R

Supplied by: European Collection of Authenticated Cell Cultures (ECACC)
Culture Type: Cell line
Collection: ECACC General Collection
Catalogue No.: 96042335
Cell Line Name: MOR/0.2R
Citation Guidance: If use of this culture results in a scientific publication, it should be cited in the publication as: MOR/0.2R (ECACC 96042335)
Keywords: Human lung adenocarcinoma, drug-resistant
Cell Line Description: The drug resistant cell line MOR/0.2R has been derived from the parent line, MOR, by continuous exposure to increasing concentrations of doxorubicin (also known as adriamycin). MOR/0.2R accumulate lower levels of doxorubicin than the parent line and have been shown to overexpress multi drug resistance associated protein (MRP). Expression of a 190kDa membrane protein associated with the degree of drug-resistance has been indicated. Cells grow as easily detaching aggregates.
Species: Human
Tissue of Origin: Lung
Growth Mode: Semi-adherent aggregates
Karyotype: Not specified
Biosafety Information: Unless specified otherwise, at the European Collection of Authenticated Cell Cultures (ECACC) we routinely handle all of our cell lines at containment level 2 in accordance with the ACDP guidelines. ACDP = Advisory Committee on Dangerous Pathogens (UK)
All cell cultures have the potential to carry as yet unidentified adventitious agents. It is the responsibility of the end user to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.

ACDP Guidance: Biological agents: Managing the risks in laboratories and healthcare premises.

Subculture Routine: Split subconfluent cultures (70-80%) 1:2 to 1:4 seeding at 2-4 x 10,000 cells/cm² using 0.05% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37°C. It is recommended to culture the cells without drug after resuscitation until the first passage. These cells produce a lot of cell debris.
Culture Medium: RPMI 1640 + 2mM Glutamine + 0.2µg/ml Doxorubicin + 10% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS).

The Culture Collections represent deposits of cultures from world-wide sources. While every effort is made to ensure details distributed by Culture Collections are accurate, Culture Collections cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in the data supplied. References where quoted are mainly attributed to the establishment of the cell culture and not for any specific property of the cell line, therefore further references should be obtained regarding cell culture characteristics. Passage numbers where given act only as a guide and Culture Collections does not guarantee the passage number stated will be the passage number received by the customer.

Cultures supplied by Culture Collections 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.
