Tool Details


  • Name: MEF UNG KO Cell Line
  • Cancer: Blood cancer
  • Cancers detailed: B cell lymphoma
  • Research fields: Genetics
  • Organism: Mouse
  • Tissue: Embryo
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Model: Knock-Out
  • Description: The MEF UNG KO Cell Line is a tool for in vivo study of the function of UNG and the effects of DNA mismatch during DNA synthesis. UNG encodes one of several uracil-DNA glycosylases. One important function of uracil-DNA glycosylases is to prevent mutagenesis by eliminating uracil from DNA molecules by cleaving the N-glycosylic bond and initiating the base-excision repair (BER) pathway.
  • Production details: Primary MEFs were prepared from embryos, and permanent cell lines established from transformed clones arising spontaneously after repeated passage in culture, by standard procedures

Target Details

  • Target: Uracil-DNA Glycosylase (UNG)


  • Format: Frozen
  • Growth medium: DMEM:F12 (1:1) + 10% FCS.
  • Unit size: 1x10^6 cells / vial
  • Shipping conditions: Dry ice
  • Storage conditions: Vapor phase of liquid nitrogen. Storage at -70° C will result in loss of viability.
