Tool Details


  • Name: HPV-16-HCK cell line
  • Research fields: Cancer
  • Tool sub type: Continuous
  • Parental cell: Human Cervical Keratinocytes
  • Organism: Human
  • Tissue: Cervix
  • Disease: Cancer

  • Model: Immortalised Line
  • Conditional: No
  • Description: Contains full length HPV16 in episomal form
  • Production details: The 7905 base pair (bp) clone pEFHPV-16W12E (gift from Dr. Paul F. Lambert, University of Wisconsin Medical School, Madison, WI) derived from an HPV-positive patient was utilized as the HPV-16 genome for our replication assays (Flores et al., 1999). One hundred micrograms of HPV-16 genomes was digested overnight in a 750- l reaction from the pUC19 vector using the restriction enzyme BamHI followed by heat inactivation of the enzyme. The entire digested DNA was then re-ligated in a large volum...
