Stable HEK293 Over Expressing Ras Protein Cell Line

T60121x106 cells / 1.0 ml



Stable HEK293 Over Expressing Ras Protein Cell Line is designed as a valuable tool to cultivate serotypes 40 and 41 of enteric human adenoviruses (HAdVs) for research purposes. HAdVs have been linked to drinking water contamination which is associated with waterborne diseases. Studying HAdVs can be limited due to low detection levels in samples obtained, but with the Stable HEK293 Over Expressing Ras Protein Cell Line researchers have a tool which is highly competent of supporting HAdV growth to allow more greater detection for the virus. Infect the cells with the HAdV strains and viral cDNA is amplified.

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 VIII medium available at abm, Cat. No. TM018.). To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum (TM999) to final concentration of 10%, 1% NEAA, 1% 1M HEPES (CH039), 1 mg/ml G418 (G271), 1.5% sodium bicarbonate, 10ug/mL gentamicin, (G272), and Penicillin/Streptomycin Solution (G255) to a final concentration of 1%. Carbon dioxide (CO2): 5%, Temperature: 37.0


1) Selection with 1 mg/ml G418, 2) Ras expression analyzed via Western blot, PCR, and RT-PCR methods

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).
