Tool Details

  • Tool name: T47D/S5 Cell Line
  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Tool sub-type: Continuous
  • Parental cell line: T47D
  • Organism: Human
  • Tissue: Breast
  • Cancer type: Breast cancer
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Application: T47DS5 cells express ER alpha and progesterone receptor.
  • Description: The T47D/S5 Cell line is the control for the fulvestrant resistant T47D/182R-1 and T47D/182R-2 cell lines. Antiestrogen resistance is a major problem in breast cancer treatment. Therefore, the search for new therapeutic targets and biomarkers for antiestrogen resistance is crucial.
