CAD cells (Cath.-a-differentiated) are a variant of a CNS catecholaminergic cell line established from a brain tumour in a transgenic mouse carrying wild-type SV40 T antigen under transcriptional control of rat tyrosine hydroxylase promoter. CAD has lost the immortalising oncogene and expresses neurone-specific proteins and synaptic vesicle proteins. CAD will differentiate to form neuronal processes in serum free conditions.
