Cell Line Description

SH-SY5Y is a thrice-cloned sub-line of bone marrow biopsy-derived line SK-N-SH (Sigma catalogue no. 86012802). SH-SY-5Y has dopamine-β-hydroxylase activity and can convert glutamate to the neurotransmitter GABA. Will form tumours in nude mice in approximately 3-4 weeks. The loss of neuronal characteristics has been described with increasing passage numbers. Therefore it is recommended to verify specific characteristics such as noradrenalin uptake or neuronal markers routinely.

Application

SH-SY5Y cell line human is used for neurotransmitter studies
SH-SY5Y cell line human has been used to:
  • study the iron-mediated toxicity of amyloid β peptide
  • check the significance of anionic luminescent conjugated polythiophene (LCP) polythiophene acetic acid (PTAA) in vital staining of cells
  • study the effect of haloperidol on sigma-1 receptors in guinea pig brain and human neuroblastoma cells

Other Notes

  • RNA is stored at -70 °C
  • Cell line is stored at -196 °C

Culture Medium

Ham′s F12:EMEM (EBSS) (1:1) + 2mM Glutamine + 1% Non Essential Amino AcidsNEAA + 15% Foetal Bovine Serum FBS / FCS.

Subculture Routine

Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:10 to 1:100 i.e. seeding at 1x1,000-1x10,000 cells/cm2; using 0.25% Trypsin or Trypsin/EDTA, 5% CO2; 37°C. Cells may reattach slowly and may remain in suspension for several days. The loss of neuronal characteristics has been described with increasing passage numbers. Therefore it is recommended to verify specific characteristics such as noradrenalin uptake or neuronal markers routinely.
