  • Name: DOK Cell Line
  • Cancer: Head and neck cancer
  • Cancers detailed: Human Caucasian dysplastic oral keratinocyte
  • Research fields: Cancer;Drug development
  • Organism: Human
  • Tissue: Tongue
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Growth properties: Adherent
  • Model: Tumour line
  • Conditional: Yes
  • Description: The degree of dysplasia in the patient was described as mild to moderate. The cells show some stratification in confluent cultures and contain a keratin profile similar to the original dysplasia. Growth is stimulated by hydrocortisone and inhibited by cholera toxin. Expression of p53 is increased and a 12 bp in-frame deletion of the p53 gene (codon 188-191) could be identified. DOK cells are non-tumourigenic in athymic nude mice.
  • Production details: The dysplastic oral keratinocyte cell line DOK was isolated from a piece of dorsal tongue from a 57 year old man. After a squamous-cell carcinoma was removed from the patient, who had been a heavy smoker, the remaining dysplasia was removed subsequently and used to initiate primary cultures leading to the establishment of DOK.
