Scientific resources

MPEK-BL6 long-term mouse keratinocytes are isolated from normal C57BL/6 mouse skin and have not been actively transformed. These long-term keratinocytes have been widely characterized in the literature and they retain the ability to differentiate.

CELLnTEC’s Long-Term cells are provided at approx. passage 30 and come with a guarantee of at least 6 months of growth post-delivery.

As with all cell cultures that deliver long-term growth, it is recommended to expand the cells after initial delivery, then freeze-down a group of stock vials. Experiments should then be conducted in the subsequent approx. 15-20 passages after thawing each of the stock vials.

Once 15-20 passages have been completed, the culture should be discarded and a new culture started from a fresh stock vial.
