Tool name: CMT 170 Cell Line
Tool type: Cell Lines
Cancer type: Lung carcinoma, metastatic
Description: The tumourigenic and metastatic CMT 170 murine cell line is sub-line of CMT 64 and an in vivo mouse tumourigenesis system to study the growth characteristics and metastasis of mouse tumour lines. it demonstrates stable growth characteristics and morphology in culture and in lung metastasis induced after subcutaneous inoculation of mice. CMT 170 was selected as a sub-line of CMT 64 for its increased metastatic ability.
