Description

abm | Immortalized Rat Steroidogenic Granulosa Cells stably expressing FSH Receptor (GFSHR-17) | T0605

in vitro culture of primary cells.

The Immortalized Rat Steroidogenic Granulosa Cells stably expressing FSH Receptor is responsive to FSH stimulation and produces progesterone as a result at levels comparable to primary cells. This cell line is useful in studying FSH-FSH receptor interactions, as well as how FSH receptor regulates the development and maturation of ovarian follicle. Together with the Immortalized Rat Steroidogenic Granulosa Cells expressing LH Receptor (Cat. No T0606), researchers can compare the LH and FSH signaling in homologues cell systems.

Propagation:

The base medium for this cell line is Prigrow IV medium available at abm . To make the complete growth medium, add the following components to the base medium: fetal bovine serum to a final concentration of 10% and Penicillin/Streptomycin Solution to a final concentration of 1%
Carbon dioxide (CO2): 5%, Temperature: 37.0°C.

Quality Control:

1) Phenotypic response to FSH was characterized by shape changes (cells rounding up); 2) FSH receptor expression was measured by radiolabelled 125I-oFSH binding assay- the cells express 27,000 FSH receptors/cell with a Kd of 100-115 pM, similar to the native receptor; 3) Production of progesterone was determined by radioimmunoassay (RIA); 4) Production of cAMP was measured by a protein binding method
