The present review aims to give a short overview of the existing cell culture models and their characteristics. While both the induction and the prevention of tumors can only be unequivocally demonstrated in vivo, in vitro models of colorectal cell growth are essential tools for the identification of candidate compounds ...

Cultured cell lines have become an extremely valuable resource, both in academic research and in industrial biotechnology. However, their value is frequently compromised by misidentification and undetected microbial contamination. As detailed elsewhere in this volume, the technology, both simple and sophisticated, is available to remedy the problems of misidentification and ...

Human embryonic stem (ES) cell lines have opened great potential and expectation for cell therapy and regenerative medicine. Monkey and human ES cell lines, which are very similar to each other, have been established from monkey blastocysts and surplus human blastocysts from fertility clinics. Nonhuman primate ES cell lines provide ...

This article describes a DNA-based vaccination strategy evaluated ex vivo with human cells. The vaccine was prepared by transferring tumor-derived genomic DNA to PCI-13 cells, a highly immunogenic tumor cell line ("recipient cell"), which had been genetically modified to secrete IL-2 (PCI-13/IL-2). PCI-13 cells expressed class I MHC determinants (HLA-A2) ...

Nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) is a common cancer in Southeast Asia, especially in southern China. One of the most striking features of this disease is its close relationship with Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV). However, to date there is no direct study on the mechanisms involved in the role of EBV in the ...

Infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) of specific high-risk type triggers a series of events in target cells, which will eventually lead to development of genital neoplasia. The integration of high-risk HPV DNA into the cell genome has been regarded as a crucial event in tumor progression. With respect to different ...

A human middle ear epithelial cell line (HMEEC-1) was established using human papillomavirus E6/E7 genes. HMEEC-1 has remained morphologically and phenotypically stable, even after 50 passages. The cells are anchorage-dependent and nontumorigenic when injected into nude mice. This cell line thus provides a new tool for the study of normal ...

Human leukemia-lymphoma (LL) cell lines represent important tools for experimental research. Among the various problems associated with cell lines, the two most common concern contaminations: (1) cross-contamination with unrelated cells and (2) contamination with microorganisms, in particular mycoplasma. The bad news is that about one-third of the cell lines are ...

In this work, we showed that human colon cancer cell lines produce trypsin which can activate a receptor for trypsin, the protease-activated receptor-2 (PAR-2), in these cells. RT-PCR experiments showed that trypsinogen transcripts were present in four colon cancer cell lines: T84, Caco-2, HT-29 and C1.19A. By Western blot analysis ...

The present study generated a polyclonal antibody (AP86/3) that recognises a peptide sequence of the h5-HT(3B) receptor subunit. Western blot analysis of homogenates prepared from cell lines expressing either homomeric (h5-HT(3A)) or heteromeric (h5-HT(3A/3B)) receptors, as well as immunocytochemical studies with the same cell lines, indicated that AP86/3 recognised, selectively, ...

The human prostatic epithelial cell line BPH-1 is normally nontumorigenic in nude mice. The present report demonstrates that this cell line can be permanently transformed by its microenvironment to become tumorigenic. The establishment of a series of tumorigenic sublines based on this parental cell line is described. BPH-1 cells were ...

The development of in vitro propagation of cells has been an extraordinary technical advance for several biological studies. The correct identification of the cell line used, however, is crucial, as a mistaken identity or the presence of another contaminating cell may lead to invalid and/or erroneous conclusions. We report here ...

Herceptin is a humanized antibody that binds to the product of the HER-2 oncogene. Clinical studies have indicated that treatment with Herceptin may slow disease progression in tumors expressing high levels of the HER-2 antigen. However, the mechanism of this action is not known. Four different cell lines were used ...

It has been suggested that fibronectin (FN) and syndecan play an important role in many aspects of cell-substrate interactions including cell adhesion. We hypothesized that oncofetal FN (onfFN) and syndecan play an important role in the process of adhesion of several human lung cancer cell lines. To test this, levels ...

Cultured anaplastic cell lines with previously characterized phenotypes are considered to be the best positive controls for immunocytochemistry. We assessed the validity of using anaplastic cell line cytospins as positive controls for immunocytochemistry performed on ThinPrep-processed clinical samples. We compared ThinPrep-processed slides and air-dried cytospins from cultured anaplastic cell lines ...

PURPOSE: It has been suggested that the epithelioid morphology and high aggressiveness that is typical of the uveal melanoma cell line TP17 is dependent on the loss of alpha5beta1 integrin expression at the cell surface. The purpose of the current study was to test this hypothesis in the TP17 cell ...
