  • Description: MCF7/AnaR-4 is a cell culture model mimicking acquired resistance of aromatase inhibitors (AIs) - an anti-cancer therapy. This breast cancer cell line was established from MCF7/S0.5 cells, which originates from MCF7 cells. The cellular classification is epithelial, and their shape is polygonal. The MCF7/AnaR-4 cell line is resistant to the third generation AI - anastrozole (Arimidex). MCF/AnaR-4 is oestrogen receptor positive. Third generation AIs have proven to be effective treatment for oestrogen receptor positive (ER+) breast cancer and as such are recommended as first line endocrine therapy for postmenopausal ER+ breast cancer patients. Previous applications of this cell line include western blot analysis of protein expression. Since molecular mechanisms of AI resistance are largely undisclosed, the development of cell lines resistant to the non-steroidal AI anastrozole allows the study of the molecular basis for AI resistance to find new targets for treatment.
  • Application: Investigation of molecular mechanisms
  • Production details: Anastrozole-resistant cell lines were established from MCF7 cells grown in medium with 10% NCS and 10â?‚ˆ?‚Â’7 M testosterone. A culture of MCF7 cells were treated with 10â?‚ˆ?‚Â’7 M anastrozole for one week, trypsinized and seeded in serial dilutions in 24-well plates. Single colonies were transferred to new wells and gradually expanded in medium with anastrozole. After ~2â?‚€?‚“3 months, the isolated colonies gave rise to anastrozole-resistant cell lines, which could be grown i...
