Origin and General Characteristics

Cell Name RAW 264.7 Cell Line
Organism Mus musculus, Mouse
Age Adult
Tissue Abelson murine leukemia virus-induced tumor, ascites
Morphology Monocyte/macrophage
Growth Properties Adherent
Descriptions This cell line is easy to propagate, high efficiency for DNA transfection, sensitivity to RNA interference, and supports replication of murine noroviruses. This cell line is negative for surface immunoglobulin(sIg-), Ia(Ia-) and Thy-1.2(Thy-1.2). When this line was established, it was described as not secreting detectable virus particles and negative using the XC plaque formation assay. Based on a published study by Dr. Janet W. Hartley in 2008, this line was demonstrated to express ecotropic and polytropic MuLV, and is positive using the XC plaque assay for virus replication.Ref
Biosafety Level 2

Medium Renewal Every 2 to 3 days
Cryopreservation Freeze medium: 60% Basal medium+30% FBS+10% DMSO
Storage temperature: Liquid nitrogen vapor phase
Culture Conditions Atmosphere: Air, 95%; CO2, 5%
