Tool Details

  • Tool name: STAT2-Defective Mutant Daudi (RST2) cell line
  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Tool sub-type: Continuous
  • Parental cell line: Human Daudi Burkitt Lymphoma cell line
  • Organism: Human
  • Tissue: Blood
  • Cancer type: Blood cancer
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Model: Transgenic
  • Description: This cell line can be used to study drug resistance developed after treatment with interferon. Interferon therapy has been proved as a successful treatment for various types of cancer, however it develops resistance in patients. This cell line was not affected by the antiviral, antiproliferative, and gene-inducing actions of IFN.
  • Research area: Cancer
  • Production details: Isolated from IFN-sensitive Daudi cell line by growth in the continuous presence of IFN

  • For Research Use Only
