  • Description: The E3 cell line was developed to examine the possibility of using the MUC1 gene and its products in active immunization against breast and other carcinomas. The human MUC1 gene codes for a type I membrane glycoprotein that is normally expressed on the apical surface of most glandular epithelial cells, but which is upregulated and under- or differently glycosylated in carcinomas; these differences in glycosylation lead to the exposure of novel epitopes which are not found on the normally processed mucin and can therefore be used as targets.
  • Production details: The E3 cell line was developed from the 410.4 murine mammary cell line by transfection of the hygromycin resistance gene with the MUC1 gene.
