|I. General information|
|Background:||EMT6 was established from a transplantable murine mammary carcinoma that arose in a BALB/cCRGL mouse after implantation of a hyperplastic mammary alveolar nodule. The resulting tumor line (named KHJJ) was propagated in BALB/cKa mice and adapted to tissue culture after the 25th animal passage, and the cell line was named EMT. EMT6 is a clonal isolate of EMT isolated in 1971 at Stanford University.|
|Species:||Mus musculus, mouse|
Cobioer’s Cell Line Authentication Service
|Culture Medium:||Waymouth's MB 752/1 Medium+2mM L-glutamine+15%FBS
We strongly suggest to purchase the complete medium from Cobioer.
|Tumor Formation:||Yes, forms solid tumors in some sublines of BALB/c mice|
|Comments:||The EMT6 cell line can be grown either in animals as a tumor or in tissue culture. Cells derived from tumors have a reported in vitro plating efficiency of 30%. Cell grown in tissue culture reportedly have a plating efficiency of 70%.
