Tool Details

*FOR RESEARCH USE ONLY

  • Name: Immortalised Human Melanocyte [PIG1] Cell Line
  • Cancer: Skin cancer
  • Research fields: Cancer;Cell biology
  • Tool sub type: Continuous
  • Parental cell: Human foreskin
  • Organism: Human
  • Gender: Male
  • Tissue: Neonatal foreskin
  • Growth properties: Cells were routinely passaged 1:4 at confluency
  • Model: Immortalised Line
  • Conditional: No
  • Description: Immortalized human melanocyte cell line established by introduction of retroviral construct carrying a geneticin resistance gene and containing HPV16E6E7 open reading frames
  • Application: Melanocyte biology research, in vitro studies on the etiology of pigmentary disorders and melanoma
  • Production details: Melanocyte cultures were established from neonatal foreskin using standard methods. Melanocytes from passage 12 were transfected with HPV16 genes E6 and E7 using the retroviral construct LXCN16E6E7. The E6E7 genes are under the control of the MMLV promoter-enhancer sequence. In addition the vector contained a geneticin resistance gene. The retroviral particles were produced by the packaging cell line PA317. The critical concentration of geneticin for transformed selection was 1mg/ml.
  • Biosafety level: 1
  • Cellosaurus id: CVCL_S410
