  • Organism: Human
  • Tissue: Skin
  • Cancer type: Skin Cancer, Squamous Cell Carcinoma
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Description: IC1 squamous cell carcinoma cell line derived from a primary tumour. Background and Research Application The SCC series represent primary, recurrent and metastatic carcinoma. Availability of such a series from the same individual will facilitate genetic analysis of the malignant process. This cell line has been used in a variety of research, including research in the role of Notch signalling mutations in SCC.
