Cell Line Description

Derived from a malignant glioma from a female patient by explant technique. It is reported to produce a malignant tumour consistent with glioblastoma in nude mice.

Application

Neural studies
U-87 MG cell line has been used to study the effects of the lysosomal destabilizing drug Siramesine on glioblastoma. It has also been used to study calcium-independent disruption of microtubule dynamics by nanosecond pulsed electric fields.
