  • Description: Access an adriamycin-resistant derivative of the gold standard ovarian cancer line A2780. The A2780 series of ovarian cancer cell lines have been effective cancer research tools for over 20 years. A2780ADR is an adriamycin-resistant cell line that has been developed by exposure of adriamycin to the parent A2780 cell line (catalogue no. 152706). Adriamycin (doxorubicin) is frequently used as a therapeutic agent for cancer, by interfering with DNA replication. A2780ADR cells grow as a monolayer and in suspension in spinner cultures and are tumourigenic in immune deficient mice. To maintain resistance, adriamycin must be added to the culture medium. Key features of A2780ADR: (1) Cross-resistance to melphalan and vinblastine. (2) Useful in investigation of drug resistance mechanisms in cancer.
  • Application: Study of drug transport, toxicity testing, drug resistance cancer studies
  • Production details: Split sub-confluent cultures (70-80%) 1:5 to 1:10 i.e. seeding at 5x1,000 to 2x10,000 cells/cmÂ?‹Â› using 0.25% trypsin or trypsin/EDTA; 5% CO2; 37Â?‚°C. Recommendation: culture cells without drug after resuscitation until growth has been fully established.
