Human Liver Stellate Clls (CI-HLiStCs)
CI-HLiStCs (UBP-0071) are selected from HLiStCs (UBP-0035) infected with lentiviruses expressing SV40 LT antigen under the control of Tet-On system resistant puromycin. CI-HLiStCs are maintained with proliferative capacity in the presence of DoxycyclineNOTE1 in Stellate-Growth medium (contains 10% serum and growth supplements, Cat# UBP-31).
CI-HLiStCs are negative for HIV-1, HBV, HCV, and mycoplasma.
Product Use: CI-HLiStCs are for research use onlyNOTE3.
Shipping: Frozen Vial.
When you receive the cells in a frozen vial, you can transfer the vial of cells into a -80ºC freezer for short period storage or a liquid nitrogen tank for long term storage. Thaw the cells in a 37°CNOTE2 water bath, and then transfer the cells into a T25 flask pre-coated with Universal Coating Solution (UBP01) as described in detail in Subculture Protocol.
NOTE 1: To minimize the effect of SV40 antigen LT for your studies, cells could be cultured in the absence Doxycycline for 3-5 days.
NOTE 2: Although wild type SV40 LT antigen is used for cell immortalization, we noticed that the immortalized cells are growing better at 33-34ºC, we encourage the end users to switch to 33-34ºC if cells are growing slower at 37ºC.
