Tool Details

  • Tool name: SVCT-MI2 Cell Line
  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Organism: Human
  • Tissue: Breast
  • Cancer type: Breast
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Growth properties: Adherent

  • Description: SVCT-MI2 was established in 1987 from epithelial cells in breast milk secretions. The cells have been transfected by microinjection using SV40 DNA and a plasmid containing the neomycin gene and the human oncogene EJ Harvey-ras. After selection of G418-resistant colonies, the clone SVCT-MI2 was shown to be tumorigenic in nude mice. They also have the ability to grow anchorage-independent if cultured in soft agar.
