Application

Prostate cancer (PCA) is the most frequently diagnosed cancer among men in the USA, with over 150 000 new cases expected annually. Approximately 6% become metastatic, with a 5-yr survival rate of only 29%. Metastatic lesions form most frequently in bone. Since the 1940s, the standard treatment for advanced PCA has been surgical or chemical castration targeting the androgen receptor (AR) signaling axis. Most treated patients, however, develop resistance and become androgen independent, which contributes to disease progression and poor prognosis, delineating a critical need to identify novel targetable pathways mediating resistance (1). The scientific investigation of PCA tumorigenesis and experimental therapies has been limited to a few of cell- and animal-based model systems.

Source:
Xenografted into SCID mice before propagated in cell culture, the parental PCA cell line VCaP derives from a vertebral metastatic lesion of a hormone refractory prostate cancer patient. Successfully cultured for over 50 passages in vitro, VCaP is considered an immortalized cell line (2). VCaP-EnzR is an enzalutamide resistant (EnzR) derivative of VCaP, developed by prolonged in vitro culture with enzalutamide, a second-generation AR antagonist efficacious in the treatment of castration resistant prostate cancer. VcaP-EnzR is a valuable research tool for studying castration resistant prostate cancer (3).

Biosafety Level 2
VCaP-EnzR cells contain mouse xenotropic retrovirus Bxv-1 and should be handled under biosafety level 2. The parental VCaP prostate cancer cell line is known to produce the mouse xenotropic rerovirus Bxv-1, which was likely acquired by the cells during their xenotransplantation in mice.

Features and Benefits

VCaP-EnzR Human Enzalutamide Resistant Prostate Cell Line is a valuable research model for studying castration resistant prostate cancer

Storage and Stability

Store 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.
