Cell Line Origin

Monkey African Green Kidney human CDw150 (SLAM) mealses virus receptor expression

Cell Line Description

Vero/hSLAM was derived by transfection of Vero cells with a vector plasmid (pCXN2) containing the neomycin resistance gene and an expression plasmid (pCAG-hSLAM) encoding the human signaling lymphocytic activation molecule (SLAM) , also known as CDw150, which is a receptor for measles virus. Clones of transfected cells were selected in the presence of geneticin (also known as G418). Vero/hSLAM cells can be used to isolate measles virus from human clinical samples and are a substitute for the B95a cell line for this purpose. Mumps susceptibility has also been demonstrated at the depositor′s laboratory.

Culture Medium

MEM with Earle's salts + 2 mM L-Glutamine (G7513) + 5% FBS / FCS (F2442) + 0.4 mg/ml Geneticin. It is essential that geneticin is added to the culture medium as it is required to maintain the expression of the SLAM gene.

Subculture Routine

Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:3 to 1:4, i.e., seeding at 1-3x10,000 cells/cm2 using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37 °C.
