  • Description: Highly metastatic murine alveogenic lung carcinoma cell line, derived from cell line CMT64, used to study the origins and causes of metastasis. <Background and Research Application: CMT167 was created in 1984 at Cancer research UK London Research Institute: Lincolns Inn Fields as a cell line with increased metastatic capabilities (selected from pooled lung metastases) from the CMT64 cell line. CMT 167 was isolated by subcloning and in vivo screening for high metastatic potential. CMT167 is a cell line of higher metastatic potential in comparison to CMT64CMT 167 is an epithelial cell line, with closely packed sheets at confluence. It has an adherent culture type.
  • Production details: Mouse; subclone of CMT 64 alveogenic lung carcinoma (isolated from primary tumour in C57BL/lcrf mouse), CMT 167 isolated by subcloning and in vivo screening for high metastatic potential. Production Details: Adult female mice (4-6 months) C57B/T were subcutaneously injected in the lower right flank with pooled tumour fragments from different non-necrotic areas of tumour with a Bashford needle - the cells from these tumours are on CMT64 origin. These cells were then cultured from lung metastases and the epithelial outgrowths were established as CMT167.
