OE21, also known as JROECL21, was established in 1993 from a squamous carcinoma of mid oesophagus of a 74 year-old male patient. The tumour was identified as pathological stage IIA(UICC) and showed moderate differentiation. HLA-A,-B and -C (MHC class I) are expressed constitutively, expression of ICAM-1 can be induced by treatment with interferon-gamma. OE21 cells express epithelial cytokeratins and are tumourigenic in nude mice.
