MTSV1-7 CE1 Cell Line


Catalogue Number 151503
Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets ERBB2
Parental Line MTSV1-7
Host Human
Tissue Breast
Disease Keywords Breast cancer
Model Transgenic
Relevance The human mammary luminal epithelial cell line MTSV1-7 was transfected with an ERBB2 expression vector, enabling over-expression of the ERBB2 proto-oncogene. It allows in vitro study of ERBB2 proto-oncogene over-expression in human mammary epithelia adn of the effects of ERBB2 over-expression on epithelial morphology & adhesion. The over-expression of the ERBB2 receptor inhibits morphogenesis in vitro, and induces reduced expression of surface adhesion molecules as E-Cadherin and a2 integrin, suggesting a role for ERBB2 over-expression in tumour progression and metastasis.
Production Details MTSV1-7 transfected with SV40 plasmid DNA; MTSV1-7 ce1 line transfected with plasmid constructs for pSV2-erbB2 and pSV2neo.
Research Area Adhesion, Cancer, Cell Signaling & Signal Transduction, Cell Structure and Motility, Drug Discovery & Development
Recommended Growing Conditions DMEM + 2mM Glutamine + 10% Foetal Bovine Serum (FBS) + Insulin (bovine) at 10ug/ml +Hycrocortisone at 5ug/ml.
Cellosaurus ID CVCL_3033
