Human Ovarian Yolk Sac Tumor Cell Line NOY1

The NOY1 cell line is a novel ovarian yolk sac tumor (YST) model useful for malignant ovarian germ cell tumor (MOGCT) research. NOY1 originated from the YST of a 28-year-old female. Tumor cells were collected via right salpingo oophorectomy and passaged 50 times in order to establish the NOY1 cell line.

Yolk sac (endodermal sinus) tumors are highly malignant ovarian germ cell tumors with characteristic expression of alpha-fetoprotein (AFP, also known as alpha-1-fetoprotein and alpha-fetoglobulin), a biomarker for germ cell tumors and other hepatocellular cancers. The NOY1 cell line has been shown to form tumors in vivo; nude mice injected with NOY1 cells developed peritoneal disseminations, which stained positive for AFP via immunohistochemistry.

Subculturing Protocol

A subcultivation ratio of 1:2 to 1:6 is recommended. Medium should be renewed 2-3 times per week.

  1. Remove and discard culture medium.
  2. Briefly rinse the cell layer with 0.25% (w/v) Trypsin- 0.53 mM EDTA solution to remove all traces of serum that contains trypsin inhibitor.
  3. Add 2.0 to 3.0 mL of Trypsin-EDTA solution to flask and observe cells under an inverted microscope until cell layer is dispersed (usually within 5 to 15 minutes). Note: To avoid clumping do not agitate the cells by hitting or shaking the flask while waiting for the cells to detach. Cells that are difficult to detach may be placed at 37°C to facilitate dispersal.
  4. Add 6.0 to 8.0 mL of complete growth medium and aspirate cells by gently pipetting.
  5. Add appropriate aliquots of the cell suspension to new culture vessels.
  6. Incubate cultures at 37°C.
