  • Name Stephen Prime
  • Institute University of Bristol

Tool Details

  • Tool name: H376 Cell Line
  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Tissue: Oral Cavity
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Growth properties: Adherent
  • Model: Tumour line
  • Conditional: Yes
  • Description: Established from a squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the floor of the mouth (20mm-40mm) of a 40 year-old female patient. STNMP stage III, well differentiated, node positive tumour. Mutant p53, codon 266 exon 8, G to T; wild type K-, N-, and Ha-ras. This cell line is highly responsive to TGFbeta. H376 cells in culture scatter, i.e. the cells redistribute on the substrate, in response to Hepatocyte Growth Factor. Non-tumourigenic in athymic nude mice by subcutaneous injection and on injection into the floor of the mouth (orthotopic). Haplotype information: A*03,A*24; B*27,B*35; Cw*04,Cw*12
  • Research area: Cancer
  • Cellosaurus ID: CVCL_2463

  • For Research Use Only

Target Details

  • Target: Human oral squamous cell carcinoma, floor of mouth
