Initial Handling Guidelines 1. Thaw the vial in 37ºC water bath approximately 1-2 minutes.
2. Transfer the cell suspension to a 15 ml/50 ml conical sterile polypropylene centrifuge tube containing pre-warmed culture medium. Wash vial with an additional culture medium to collect remaining cells, and centrifuge at 201 × g (rcf) for 5 minutes at room temperature.
3. Resuspend the cell pellet in 5 ml pre-warmed culture medium and count cell number. Seed cells in an appropriate cell culture flask at a density of 2×104 cells/cm2. This should allow for confluency within 48 hours.
4. Incubate the culture at 37ºC incubator with 5% CO2. Cultures should be monitored daily.
Subculture Guidelines Cells should be passaged when they have achieved 80-90% confluence. A partial media change 24 hours prior to subculture may be helpful to encourage growth.
Description Human wild-type HEK293T cell line as the recommended control.

Target Info

Target Function Creatine kinase MT is responsible for the transfer of high energy phosphate from mitochondria to the cytosolic carrier, creatine. Overexpression of ubiquitous mitochondrial creatine kinase is involved in many malignant cancers with poor prognosis.
Cellular Localization Cell membrane and mitochondrial.
Target Sequence Similarities Belongs to the creatine kinase isoenzyme family.
