Cell Line Origin

Human Caucasian breast adenocarcinoma

Cell Line Description

Established from the pleural effusion from a 69 year female caucasian suffering from a breast adenocarcinoma. Cells exhibit some features of differentiated mammary epithelium including oestradiol synthesis and formation of domes. Cells may carry B or C type retrovirus and are considered to represent a category 2 pathogen (P2 containment). Cells express both the wild type and variant oestrogen receptors as well as progesterone receptor. The cells should be handled under laboratory containment level 2.
