Tool Details

  • Tool name: D34 Cell Line
  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Parental cell line:
  • Organism: Human
  • Tissue: Tongue
  • Cancer type: Dysplasia, Leukoplakia
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Description: D34 Cell Line is derived from a leukoplakia biopsy. The cell line was notable in its proliferative capacity, considered immortal after having completed more than 100 PDs (population doublings ) when maintained on a feeder layer of irradiated 3T3 fibroblasts. D34 was categorised as having a moderate dysplasia pathology.
  • Research area: Cancer ; Drug Discovery & Development

  • For Research Use Only
