Stable Human ER Positive Breast Epithelial Cell Line

T60211x106 cells / 1.0 ml



Stable Human ER Positive Breast Cells expresses endogenous estrogen receptors (ER) in culture. It is a viable cell culture system enabling end users to conduct studies with oestrogen and screening of drug candidates suitable for breast cancer. The cells are a reliable source of renewable culture as the cells is immortalized with hTERT, thus limits batch to batch variation and gives expression of the estrogen receptors to manipulate.

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. TM004. To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: 0.5??g/ml hydrocortisone, 5??g/ml insulin, 10?ng/ml cholera toxin (Sigma), 10?ng/ml epidermal growth factor (Peprotech), 1.8 × 10–4?M adenine, 10??M Y-27632 (Y0503, Sigma), fetal bovine serum (TM999) to a final concentration of 5%, and Penicillin/Streptomycin Solution (G255) to a final concentration of 1%.
Carbon dioxide (CO2): 5%, Temperature: 37.0°C.

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).
