I would like to know if this cell line is immortalized and if I can expand it for experiments involving analysis of DNA damage (eg. comet and TUNEL assays) and cellular transformation (eg. soft agar colony formation assay). Furthermore, I would like to know if CSC-7745W Human Oral Keratinocytes (HOK) were isolated from gingiva. If not, where do they come from?

Human Oral Keratinocytes (HOK) are primary cells, but we do also have Immortalized Human Oral Keratinocytes in stock. They are both isolated from human gingiva tissues.
