Tool Details

  • Tool name: 2C4 cell line
  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Tool sub-type: Continuous
  • Parental cell line: HT 1080
  • Organism: Human
  • Cancer type: Sarcoma
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Description: The 2C4 cell line is a clonal derivative of the human fibrosarcoma cell line HT 1080. The 2C4 cell line clone expresses the simple cell-surface marker CD2 (normally expressed only on T cells) under the control of the 9-27 gene promoter. The 9-27 gene promoter is inducible by interferon gamma.
