U-2 OS Cell Line

General Information
OrganismHomo sapiens, human
Cell Line DescriptionThe U-2 OS cell line, originally known as the 2T line, was cultivated from the bone tissue of a fifteen-year-old human female suffering from osteosarcoma. Established in 1964, the original cells were taken from a moderately differentiated sarcoma of the tibia. U-2 OS cells have a very high proliferation rate and are extremely robust in experimental procedures. These make them attractive for not only cancer research but other areas of research which need cells for in vitro experiments.

Biosafety Level1
Biosafety classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.
ApplicationsU-2 OS cells have been used to assess cell proliferation using Alamar Blue and live cell imaging.

Receptor ExpressionInsulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I); insulin-like growth factor II (IGF II)
Cellular ProductsOsteosarcoma derived growth factor (ODGF), Blood Type A; Rh+; Aw30, B12, Bw35, B40(+/-),HLA A2
CommentsU-2 OS cells exhibit epithelial adherent morphology and viruses were not detected in the line during co-cultivation with WI-38 cells or in CF tests against RSV, SV40 or adenoviruses. Mycoplasma contamination of the U-2 OS line was detected and subsequently eliminated in 1972.
Culture Conditions and Handling
Culture MediumDMEM + 10% FBS + 2mM L-Glutamine + 100 units/ml penicillin + 100 micro-g/ml streptomycin.
Thawing1. Take out the U-2 OS stock vial from liquid nitrogen and thaw it at room temperature.
2. Resuspend thawed cells in 10 ml growth media and transfer cells into a 10 sq. cm. tissue culture dish. Cells are grown in a 37°C incubator at 5% CO2.
Subculturing1. Aspirate growth media from the tissue culture dish.
2. Add 5 mL of Trypsin (0.05%) with EDTA solution and incubate at the 37°C incubator until cells detach.
3. Add 5 mL of fresh growth media and collect cells in a centrifuge tube.
4. Spin at 1500 rpm for 5 minutes.
5. Aspirate supernatant and add fresh growth media.
6. Transfer 1-5X10^5 viable cells/ml to a new culture vessel and incubate cultures at 37°C.
Split RatioA subcultivation ratio of 1:3 to 1:6 is recommended.
Medium RenewalEvery 2 to 3 days
Incubation ConditionCarbon dioxide (CO2), 5%; 37°C
FreezingCells can be stored as a stock in liquid nitrogen at 2-5x10^6 cells/ml in growth medium containing 5% DMSO.
