Tool Details

  • Tool name: PEO1 Cell Line
  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Organism: Human
  • Tissue: Ovary
  • Cancer type: Adenocarcinoma
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Growth properties: Adherent
  • Model: Tumour line
  • Conditional: Yes
  • Description: The PEO1 Cell Line is one of nine from the PE ovarian adenocarcinoma panel (derived from 4 patients at varying stages of ovarian cancer, isolated from various malignant sites, and at various treatment stages) which provides a model system for research into the mechanism of oestrogen action on ovarian adenocarcinoma tumour cells, and for the study of efficacy and toxicity of oestrogen protagonists. PEO1 is an adherent cell line derived from a malignant effusion from the peritoneal ascites of a patient with a poorly differentiated serous adenocarcinoma. The patient previously received cisplatin, 5-fluorouracil and chlorambucil treatment. PEO1 is tumourigenic in immunologically-deprived CBA mice. PEO1 exhibits good growth in semi-solid medium (agar). PEO1 is from the same patient as the PEO4 and PEO6 cell lines
