Cell Line Origin

Human Caucasian lung small cell carcinoma, metastasis to liver

Cell Line Description

DMS 153 was isolated from the liver of a 44 year-old male patient at autopsy who had been treated with cytoxan and methotrexate. The cells were identified as small cell carcinoma of the lung (SCLC) and secrete moderate quantities of calcitonin (CT) and calcitonin gene related peptide (CGRP). Production of adrenocorticotropin (ACTH), bombesin (BN), 17 β-estradiol and oxytocin-neurophysin (OT-NP) has also been reported. The expression of cell surface antigens Leu-7, HLA-DR, My 23 (defined by AML-2-23 monoclonal antibody), the AML-1-99 defined antigen and CR3 receptor (defined by the OKM antibody) has been shown. DMS 153 cells produce receptors for BN and epidermal growth factor (EGF) and are tumourigenic in athymic, nude mice.
