General description

The BG-1 human ovarian adenocarcinoma cell line is one of the most widely used cell lines in ovarian cancer research, characterized by clinically relevant expression levels of both progesterone receptor and estrogen receptor and a highly robust response to exogenously-applied estrogen in vitro.2 BG-1 cells secrete cancer antigen 125 (CA-125)3 and expressed E-cadherin, an epithelial cell marker.4 The BG-1 human ovarian adenocarcinoma was derived from a stage III primary solid tumor and is a representative model of the most common ovarian cancers.

Application

Each vial contains ≥1X10⁶ cells/vial viable cells.Cells are tested negative for infectious diseases by a Human Essential CLEAR panel by Charles River Animal Diagnostic Services.Cells are verified to be of human origin and negative for inter-species contamination from mouse, rat, Chinese hamster, Golden Syrian hamster, and Non-human Primate (NHP) as assessed by a Contamination Clear panel by Charles River Animal Diagnostic Services Cells are negative for mycoplasma contamination.
Worldwide, ovarian cancer is estimated to cause over 140,000 deaths annually.1 The difficulty of early detection means that nearly 3 out of 4 cases are diagnosed at an advanced stage,1 highlighting the necessity of clinically relevant cellular models for understanding the ovarian cancer physiology at advanced stages. Ovarian cancers retaining functional expression of progesterone receptor and estrogen receptors typically have a better prognosis than cancers lacking expression of these receptors, making these carcinomas amenable to therapeutic intervention.The BG-1 human ovarian adenocarcinoma cell line is one of the most widely used cell lines in ovarian cancer research, characterized by clinically relevant expression levels of both progesterone receptor and estrogen receptor and a highly robust response to exogenously-applied estrogen in vitro.2 BG-1 cells secrete cancer antigen 125 (CA-125)3 and expressed E-cadherin, an epithelial cell marker.4 The BG-1 human ovarian adenocarcinoma was derived from a stage III primary solid tumor and is a representative model of the most common ovarian cancers.Source The BG-1 cell line was derived from a poorly differentiated stage III solid primary ovarian tumor from a patient of unspecified age.2 SCC415 has been genetically validated as an authentic BG-1 cell line.References1.

Features and Benefits

BG-1 cancer cell line is a good model for ovarian adenocarinoma

Storage and Stability

The cells should be stored in liquid nitrogen. The cells can be cultured for at least 10 passages after initial thawing without significantly affecting the cell marker expression and functionality.
