Cell Line Authentication & Quality Control Information

General Cell Collection: A2780ADR

Catalogue No.: 93112520
Cell Line Name: A2780ADR
Keywords: Human Caucasian ovarian carcinoma
Cell Line Description: The adriamycin-resistant cell line A2780ADR has been developed by exposure of the parent A2780 cell line (ECACC catalogue no. 93112519) to adriamycin. A2780ADR is cross-resistant to melphalan and vinblastine. To retain resistance adriamycin has to be added to the media. The cells grow as a monolayer and in suspension in spinner cultures and are tumourigenic in immune deficient mice. Together with the cisplatin-resistant variant A2780cis these lines only differ in their exposure to a single drug and should facilitate the search for molecular changes responsible for the expression of pleiotropic drug resistance in human ovarian cancer.

The Culture Collections represent deposits of cultures from world-wide sources. While every effort is made to ensure details distributed by Culture Collections are accurate, Culture Collections cannot be held responsible for any inaccuracies in the data supplied. References where quoted are mainly attributed to the establishment of the cell culture and not for any specific property of the cell line, therefore further references should be obtained regarding cell culture characteristics. Passage numbers where given act only as a guide and Culture Collections does not guarantee the passage number stated will be the passage number received by the customer.

Cultures supplied by Culture Collections are for research purposes only. Enquiries regarding the commercial use of a cell line are referred to the depositor of the cell line. Some cell lines have additional special release conditions such as the requirement for a material transfer agreement to be completed by the potential recipient prior to the supply of the cell line. Please view the Terms & Conditions of Supply for more information.
