  • Parental cell line: LNCaP
  • Organism: Human
  • Cancer type: Genitourinary cancer

  • Description: LNCaP cells are androgen-sensitive human prostate adenocarcinoma cells derived from the left supraclavicular lymph node metastasis from a 50-year-old Caucasian male in 1977. The androgen receptor (AR) in LNCaP cells harbours a T877A mutations which enables the anti-androgen flutamide to act as an agonist. This cell line is the most commonly used for prostate cancer research. The cell line is a clonal population of LNCaP cells grown in steroid-depleted conditions for ~4 months. Cells adapted to growth conditions and are now routinely grown in media lacking testosterone
