Atg5 Knockout Immortalized Mouse Kidney Epithelial Cell Line

T30271x106 cells / 1.0 ml



Autophagy is a catabolic process in which proteins and cellular organelles are degraded under metabolic stress through the lysosomal pathway. Essential autophagy-related genes (i.e. Atg 5 and Atg 7) play an important role in mammalian development, survival and maintaining metabolism and homeostasis. The Atg5 Knockout Immortalized Mouse Kidney Epithelial Cells (Atg5-/- iBMK) is derived from stable transformation of E1A and p53DD into primary kidney epithelial cells from mice deficient for Atg5. Together with the wild-type iBMK (T0082) and Atg7 Knockout iBMK (Atg7-/- iBMK, T3028), these cell lines are suitable in studying the relationships between autophagy and tumor suppression/cancer cell survival.

Propagation Requirements
Use of PriCoatTMT25 Flasks (G299) or Applied Cell Extracellular Matrix (G422) is required for cell adhesion to the culture vessels. Grow cells inECM-coated culture vessels unless otherwise specified in the Propagation Requirements below.
The base medium for this cell line is Prigrow III medium available at abm, Cat. No. TM003. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum (TM999) to a final concentration of 10% and Penicillin/Streptomycin Solution (G255) to a final concentration of 1%.
Carbon dioxide (CO2): 5%, Temperature: 37.0°C.

1. Western blot was used to confirm the presence of E1A and p53DD gene in the immortalized cell line. 2. Western blot was used to check epithelial markers E-cadherin and cytokeratin expression. 3. PCR genotyping of the pup tail and western blot analysis were performed to verify the genotype of the cell line.

2. Sale of this item is subjected to the completion of a Material Transfer Agreement (MTA) by the purchasing individual/institution for each order. If you have any questions regarding this, please contact us at [email protected].

3. All test parameters provided in the CoA are conducted using abm's standardized culture system and procedures. The stated values may vary under the end-user's culture conditions. Please verify that the product is suitable for your studies by referencing published papers or ordering RNA (0.5 μg, Cat.# C207, $450.00) or cell lysate (100 μg, Cat.# C206, $600.00) to perform preliminary experiments, or alternatively use our Gene Expression Assay Service (Cat# C138). All sales are final.

4. We recommend live cell shipments for ease of cell transfer and this option can be requested at the time of ordering. Please note that the end-user will need to evaluate the feasibility of live cell shipment by taking into account the final destination's temperature variation and its geographical location. In addition, we thoroughly test our cell lines for freeze-thaw recovery. If frozen cells were received and not recovered in your lab under the exact, specified conditions (using recommended culture vessel, media, additional supplements, and atmospheric conditions), a live cell replacement is possible at a cost (plus shipping).
