Rat Thyroid Epithelial Cells from Creative Bioarray are isolated from tissue of 1-day-old neonatal laboratory Sprague–Dawley Rats. Rat Thyroid Epithelial Cells are grown in T25 tissue culture flask pre-coated with gelatin-based coating solution for 0.5 hour and incubated in Creative Bioarray's Cell Culture Medium for 3-5 days. Cells are detached from flasks and immediately cryo-preserved in vials. Each vial contains 1x10^6 cells and is delivered frozen.
Rat Thyroid Epithelial Cells are characterized by immunofluorescent staining with antibodies of E-cadherin and ZO-1. Rat Thyroid Epithelial Cells are negative for bacteria, yeast, fungi, and mycoplasma. Cells can be expanded for 3-7 passages at a split ratio of 1:2 or 1:3 under the cell culture conditions specified by Creative Bioarray. Repeated freezing and thawing of cells is not recommended.
Standard biochemical procedures performed with epithelial cell cultures include the assays of cell to cell adhesion and migration, RT-PCR, Western blotting, immunoprecipitation, immunofluorescent staining or immunofluorescent flow cytometry or generating cell derivatives for desired research applications.
