  • Description: Highly metastatic murine alveogenic lung carcinoma cell line, derived from cell line CMT64, used to study the origins and causes of metastasis. Background and Research Application CMT167 was created in 1984 at Cancer research UK London Research Institute: Lincolns Inn Fields as a cell line with increased metastatic capabilities (selected from pooled lung metastases) from the CMT64 cell line. CMT 167 was isolated by subcloning and in vivo screening for high metastatic potential. CMT167 is a cell line of higher metastatic potential in comparison to CMT64 CMT 167 is an epithelial cell line, with closely packed sheets at confluence. It has an adherent culture type.
