N_N20R1 Cell Line
- Name John Lunec
- Institute Newcastle University
Tool name: N_N20R1 Cell Line
Tool type: Cell Lines
Tool sub-type: Continuous
Parental cell line: NGP
Cancer type: Neuroblastoma
Description: To determine how resistance to MDM2/p53 binding antagonists might develop, NGP cells were exposed to growth inhibitory concentrations of a MDM2 inhibitor, Nutlin-3, and a clonal resistant cell line was generated. The p53 mediated responses of the parental and resistant cell line were compared. In contrast to the parental cell lines, p53 activation by Nutlin-3, MI-63 or ionizing radiation was not observed in the NGP derived cell line, N_N20R1.
