abm | AT2 Knockout Immortalized Mouse Renal Proximal Tubule Cell Line | T0625
The proximal tubule is part of the nephron duct system in the kidney, involved in regulating the renin-angiotension system. Cells of this region aid in regulating sodium and volume homeostasis as well as regulating the systemic blood pressure. The protein Angiotension II (Ang II) and its receptors AT1 and AT2 are some of the most studied proteins in this system. The AT2 Knockout Immortalized Mouse Renal Proximal Tubule Cell Line is a conditionally immortalized mouse renal proximal tubule cells isolated from the mouse harboring thermolabile mutation (tsA58) of the simian virus 40 large T antigen. The functional expression of the SV40 large T antigen is induced by culturing the cells in vitro in medium containing IFN γ at a temperature permissive (33°C). At a non-permissive temperature (37°C-39°C), the cells cease to proliferate. When paired up with the wild type
C57B/6 mouse with AT2-/- genotype

The base medium for this cell line is Prigrow IV medium available at abm
1. Freeze Medium: Complete growth medium with 20% FBS and 10% DMSO. 2. Storage Temperature: Liquid nitrogen vapour phase.
(1) RT-PCR was performed to examine products expressed in mutant AT2 -containing cells. (2) Immunostaining was performed to detect distribution of AT1and AT2, plus assess morphology. (3) Western blotting was performed to confirm presence of AT2. (4)Electrical conductivity and changes in short-circuit currents were measured to determine how similar immortalized cells were to their non-immortalized counterparts. (5)Radioimmunoassays were performed to detect guanylate cyclase levels as a measure of AT2 receptor functionality.
