293T-CCR4 Cell Line

Home » 293T-CCR4 Cell Line


CCR4 is a G protein-linked seven transmembrane domain chemokine receptor mainly expressed by T cells, and function as a chemoattractant homing receptor on circulating memory lymphocytes through interaction with its two ligands, CCL17 and CCL22. CCR4 is also widely expressed on malignant T cells and Tregs in the skin and peripheral blood of patients with allergic diseases, and regarded as a potential therapeutic target for cutaneous Tcell lymphoma (CTCL) and atopic dermatitis and bronchial asthma. Its humanized monoclonal antibody, Mogamulizumab, have been approved for treatment CTCL in 2018.

Cell Line Generation

293T human CCR4 cell line was generated using a lentiviral vector expressing the human CCR4 sequence.



Cell Resuscitation

1. Prewarm culture medium (DMEM + 10% FBS + 1μg/mL Puromycin) in a 37°C water bath.
2. Thaw the frozen vial in a 37°C water bath for 1-2 minutes.
3. Transfer the vial into biosafety cabinet, and wipe the surface with 70% ethanol.
4. Unscrew the top of the vial and transfer the cell suspension gently into a sterile centrifuge tube containing 9.0mL complete culture medium.
5. Spin at ~ 125 × g for 5-7 minutes at room temperature, and discard the supernatant without disturbing the pellet.
6. Resuspend cell pellet with the appropriate volume of complete medium and transfer the cell suspension into a T25 culture flask.
7. Incubate the flask at 37°C, 5% CO2 incubator.
8. Split saturated culture 1:3-1:6 every 3 days; seed out at about 1-3 × 105 cells/mL.

Cell Freezing

1. Prepare the freezing medium (70% DMEM + 20% FBS + 10% DMSO) fresh immediately before use.
2. Keep the freezing medium on ice and label cryovials.
3. Transfer cells to a sterile, conical centrifuge tube, and count the cells.
4. Centrifuge the cells at 250×g for 5 minutes at room temperature and carefully aspirate off the medium.
5. Resuspend the cells at a density of at least 3×106 cells/mL in chilled freezing medium.
6. Aliquot 1 mL of the cell suspension into each cryovial.
7. Freeze cells in the CoolCell freezing container overnight in a -80°C freezer.
8. Transfer vials to liquid nitrogen for long-term storage
