PEO6 Cell Line
- Name Simon Langdon
- Institute Cancer Research UK Edinburgh Centre
Tool name: PEO6 Cell Line
Tool type: Cell Lines
Parental cell line:
Cancer type: Adenocarcinoma
Description: The PEO6 cell line 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. PEO6 was collected at advanced, terminal stage disease. PEO6 is tumourigenic in immunologically-deprived CBA mice. PEO6 exhibits good growth in semi-solid medium (agar). PEO6 is from the same patient as the PEO1 and PEO4 cell lines This 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.
