BCRJ code:
Cell Line:
Rattus norvegicus (B cell); Mus musculus (myeloma), rat (B cell); mouse (myeloma)

Vulgar Name: Rat/Mouse
Cell Type:
Hybridoma: B Lymphocyte
Growth Properties:
Spleen cells were fused with NS-1 myeloma cells.
The antibody precipitates two polypeptides of 190000 and 105000 daltons, binds to human monocytes, polymorphonuclear leukocytes and a small population of lymphocytes.
immunoglobulin; monoclonal antibody; against mouse macrophage, granulocyte (Mac-1, alpha chain)
Additional info:
Animals were immunized with C57BL/10 mouse spleen cells enriched for T lymphocytes.
Spleen cells were fused with NS-1 myeloma cells.
Mac-1 is a mouse macrophage differentiation associated with type three complement receptor (CR3).
The antigen is expressed in large amounts on thioglycollate induced peritoneal exudate macrophages and in lesser quantities on neutrophilic granulocytes, blood monocytes.
8% of spleen cells, 44% of bone marrow cells and less than 0.3% of thymus cells react with the antibody.
The antibody precipitates two polypeptides of 190000 and 105000 daltons, binds to human monocytes, polymorphonuclear leukocytes and a small population of lymphocytes.
The antibody is capable of both natural killing and antibody dependent cellular cytotoxicity.
Culture Medium:
Dulbecco's Modified Eagle's Medium (DMEM) modified to contain 4 mM L-glutamine, 4500 mg/L glucose, 1 mM sodium pyruvate, and 1500 mg/L sodium bicarbonate and fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10%.
Cultures can be maintained by the addition of fresh medium or replacement of medium. Alternatively, cultures can be established by centrifugation with subsequent resuspension at 1 to 2 X 10(5) viable cells/ml.
Interval: Maintain cell density between 1 X 10(5) and 1 X 10(6) viable cells/ml.

Medium Renewal: Add fresh medium every 2 to 3 days 
Culture Conditions:
Atmosphere: air, 95%; carbon dioxide (CO2), 5%
Temperature: 37°C
95% FBS + 5% DMSO (Dimethyl sulfoxide)
Thawing Frozen Cells:
SAFETY PRECAUTION: Is highly recommend that protective gloves and clothing always be used and a full face mask always be worn when handling frozen vials. It is important to note that
some vials leak when submersed in liquid nitrogen and will slowly fill with liquid nitrogen. Upon thawing, the conversion of the liquid nitrogen back to its gas phase may result in the vessel exploding or blowing off its cap with dangerous force creating flying debris.
1. Thaw the vial by gentle agitation in a 37°C water bath. To reduce the possibility of contamination, keep the Oring and cap out of the water. Thawing should be rapid (approximately 2 minutes).
2. Remove the vial from the water bath as soon as the contents are thawed, and decontaminate by dipping in or spraying with 70% ethanol. All of the operations from this point on should be carried out under strict aseptic conditions.
3. For cells that are sensitive to DMSO is recommended that the cryoprotective agent be removed immediately. Transfer the vial contents to a centrifuge tube containing 9.0 mL complete culture medium and spin at approximately 125 x g for 5 to 7 minutes.
4.Discard the supernatant and Resuspend cell pellet with the recommended complete medium (see the specific batch information for the culture recommended dilution ratio).
5. Incubate the culture in a appropriate atmosphere and temperature (see "Culture Conditions" for this cell line).

NOTE: It is important to avoid excessive alkalinity of the medium during recovery of the cells. It is suggested that, prior to the addition of the vial contents, the culture vessel containing the growth medium be placed into the incubator for at least 15 minutes to allow the medium to reach its normal pH (7.0 to 7.6).
