Parental cell line:
Cancer type: Human bladder transitional cell carcinoma
Description: UM-UC-10 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. Tumorigenicity studies in nude mice revealed the UM-UC-10 do not produce tumors, even after extended observation. UM-UC-10 were more resistant to adenoviral gene transduction than several of the other cells evaluated. UM-UC-10 also showed low levels of Coxsackie adenovirus receptor (CAR) expression.
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.
