*MEM: minimum essential medium; DMEM: Dulbecco's modified eagle medium; L-15: Leibovitzs medium 15; M-199: medium-199; HAM F-10 and F-12: Ham's nutrient mixture F-10 and F-12; RPMI-1640: Roswell Park Memorial Institute medium; DMEM/HAM F-12: Dulbecco's modified eagle medium/Ham's nutrient mixture F-12. The vitamin and mineral concentrations described were obtained from the webpages of the key suppliers.
**The values for the vitamin A, vitamin E, and selenium concentration in FBS were found in , and the iron concentration in FBS was determined analytically.
***The references citing the micronutrient concentrations in human serum are as follows: vitamins A , B7 , B9 , B12 , C, and E ; Mg ; Cu, Fe, Se, and Zn . The concentration of the vitamins and minerals in the media were obtained from the manufacturers.
