  • Description: The 1-7HB2 cell line is a clonal derivative of the human mammary luminal epithelial cell line MTSV1-7 identified by screening for branching morphology. It is a potent tool for in vitro study of branching morphogenesis of human mammary epithelial cells and the role of integrins in mammary morphogenesis. MTSV1-7 is a clonal non-tumourigenic cell line developed by immortalizing luminal epithelial cells cultured from milk using the SV40 T antigen. The cell line forms branching structures in the presence of fibroblast cultures or fibroblast-conditioned medium and forms spheroids in collagen type I gels.
