  • Description: The PDVC57B Cell Line is useful for the study of the progression of carcinogenesis and as a model of relapse after surgery. PDVC57B is syngeneic for C57B1/6 mice and carries a p53 mutation in codon 231, (ATG-GTC) and an A-T tranversion at cod 61 of the H-ras gene. These events appear to be remarkably similar to the sequence of changes seen during tumour development in vivo.
  • Production details: The transformed PDVB57B was created by treating the PDV cell line with the carcinogen DMBA.
  • Cellosaurus id: CVCL_4271
