- Name H. Grossman ; Anita Sabichi
- Institute University of Michigan
Tool name: UM-UC-4 (Human adenocarcinoma lymph node metastasis) cell line
Alternate names: UM-UC-4
Tool type: Cell Lines
Cancer type: Genitourinary cancer
Growth properties: Adherent
Model: Cancer Model
Description: UM-UC-4 are a human transitional cell carcinoma of the bladder.
These cells were assessed for their susceptibility to adenoviral mediated gene delivery, tumor growth in nude mice and differences in genetic alterations. These assays allowed for characterization of some of the most important features in each of the respective lines in an effort to more accurately establish commonly observed phenomena across cells of the same type of neoplasm.
