SIAT1 Stable Expressing MDCK (MDCK-SIAT1) Cell Line

T69991x106 cells / 1.0 ml


DescriptionThe SIAT1 Stable Expressing MDCK (MDCK-SIAT1) Cell Line was generated by stable transfection of MDCK cells with the cDNA of human 2,6-sialtransferase (SIAT1). When compared to the parental MDCK cells, the MDCK-SIAT1 is able to express increased levels of α-2,6-linked sialic acid receptors for isolation of circulating influenza virus. The SIAT1 Stable Expressing MDCK (MDCK-SIAT1) Cell Line is useful in isolation and propagation of human influenza viruses for observation, diagnostic, and research purposes.

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 IV medium available at abm, Cat. No. TM003.. To make the completed growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum (TM999) to final concentration of 10% with 2mM L-Glutamine (G275), 1x Non-essential amino acids, 0.075% sodium bicarbonate, 20ug/ml Amphotericin B ( G274), 1mg/ml G418 Geneticin (G271), and Penicillin/Streptomycin Solution (G255) to a final concentration of 1%.
Carbon dioxide (CO2): 5%, Temperature: 37.0°C.
Subculture Protocol1. Remove and discard culture medium. 2. Add 2.0mL of Trypsin-EDTA(TM050) solution to flask and observe cells under an inverted microscope until cell layer is dispersed. Note: Cells that are difficult to detach may be placed at 37
Preservation Protocol1. Freeze Medium: Complete growth medium with 20% FBS and 10% DMSO.
2. Storage Temperature: Liquid nitrogen vapour phase.

1. For for-profit organizations and corporations, please contact [email protected] for pricing of this item.

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).
