SK-GT-4 was established from a primary tumour in 1989 from a 89 year-old Caucasian male who presented with dysphagia secondary to a well-differentiated adenocarcinoma arising in the Barrett epithelium of the distal oesophagus. The tumour invaded into but not through the muscle layer (T2) and involved 3 of 14 lymph nodes (N1). SK-GT-4 was found to be tumorigenic in athymic nu/nu mice.
