U-87 MG can be obtained from the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) where it is known by the accession number HTB-14.
The entire sequence of the genome of U-87 MG has recently been published in PLoS Genetics, 2010 January; 6(1): e1000832.
U87 growth media is generally made with Eagle's minimum essential medium + 10% FBS + 100 U/ml penicillin + 100 ug/ml streptomycin. It is propagated at 37 degrees Celsius in a 5% carbon dioxide atmosphere.
