Cat.No.
CSC-C8204L
Description
This cell line was established from prostate cancer tissue harvested from a metastatic lesion to a lumbar vertebral body of a patient with hormone refractory prostate cancer. The cells are reported to express large quantities of prostate specific antigen (PSA). This cell line also expresses prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP), cytokeratin-18 and the androgen receptor, and is androgen sensitive in vitro and in vivo. This cell line offers a cell-based model system of human prostate cancer. The cells are tumourigenic in SCID mice.
