3LL NRAS KO #63 cell line
- Name Julian Downward
- Institute The Francis Crick Institute
Tool name: 3LL NRAS KO #63 cell line
Tool type: Cell Lines
Tool sub-type: Continuous
Parental cell line: 3LL aka LL/2 (LLC1) likely origin - please note genetic divergence in relevance information
Growth properties: Semi-adherent
Description: Murine Lewis Lung Adenocarcinoma engineered cell line with NRAS knocked out using CRISPR-Cas9. Please note: The authors have established (by DNA sequencing) that these cells are homozygous for the KRAS-G12C & NRAS-Q61H mutations which is not the case for the parent 3LL ATCC line. It is assumed both mutant NRAS and KRAS in 3LL cells drive RAS pathway activation. By knocking out NRAS a tumourigenic cell line with a stronger dependency on KRAS-G12C was generated. Model cell line for study of the effect of KRAS-G12C inhibitors on oncogenic cells. CRISPR edited 3LL cells.
Research area: Cancer; Cell Cycle; Cell Signaling & Signal Transduction
Additional notes: CRISPR edited 3LL cells.
