|Background||Mouse cell lines (A-20, EL4, L1210, NIH/3T3, P815 and RAW 264.7)|
Mouse Cell Array carries 6 different mouse cell lines, including A-20, EL4, L1210, NIH/3T3, P815, and RAW 264.7. Cells were harvested at the log phase of growth. In order to keep the antigens in their native forms, cells were fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde. The cells were arrayed on a 12-well (5 mm) adhesive coated slide, with each wellis surface specifically treated to enhance cellular attachment and to minimize background staining. Each well loaded with approximately 7.5 x 103 cells. A follow-up heat dehydration process was done to ensure the attachment of cells and the stability of cellular proteins.
