Tool Details

  • Tool name: Lymphangiosarcoma (562) cell line
  • Alternate names: 562 cell line
  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Organism: Mouse
  • Cancer type: Angiosarcoma/Lymphangiosarcoma
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Model: Tumour line
  • Conditional: Yes
  • Conditional description: Cells derived from C57BL/6 mouse carrying paw cutaneous tumor through tamoxifen -induced Tsc1 gene deletion in endothelial cells with Scl-Cre
  • Description: Angiosarcoma/lymphangiosarcoma is a rare cancer that currently has no effective treatment. The mechanism of angiosarcoma development is largely unknown, and there is no animal model for the disease with molecularly defined pathogenesis. Loss of Tsc1 can cause hyper-activation of mTORC1 signaling in endothelial cells, which results in the development of lymphatic malformation (LM) and progression to vascular tumors that recapitulate salient features of human lymphangiosarcoma (LAS), including local invasion and systemic metastasis.
