Tool Details

  • Tool name: CMT 64/61 Cell Line
  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Organism: Mouse
  • Tissue: Lung
  • Cancer type: Lung cancer
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Growth properties: Tumorigenesis, adherent
  • Model: Tumour line
  • Conditional: Yes
  • Description: The tumourigenic and metastatic CMT 64/61 murine cell line is derived from an alveologenic lung carcinoma of a C57BL/1CRF mouse. It can be maintained in a completely defined serum free medium, but the growth rate is much slower than in supplemented serum. It has been used in studies of lung metastases.
  • Research area: Cancer; Drug development
  • Production details: Mouse; CMT 64 isolated from primary alveogenic lung carcinoma tumour mass in C57BL/lcrf mouse, achieving stable morphology and growth rate in culture, similar to growth rate and morphology in primary tumour, and in lung metastasis induced after subcutaneous innoculation of mice.
  • Cellosaurus ID: CVCL_4146

  • For Research Use Only
