ECACC General Cell Collection: MCF7/182R-6

Collection: ECACC General Collection
Catalogue No.: 16022506
Cell Line Name: MCF7/182R-6
Keywords: Breast cancer, fulvestrant resistant
Cell Line Description: The MCF7/182R-6 Cell line is a breast cancer cell line resistant to fulvestrant. The MCF7/182R-6 cell line has been established from a clone of MCF7/S0.5 cells surviving long term growth with the pure steroidal antiestrogen ICI 182,780 in 100 nM concentration, see Lykkesfeldt et al (1995). The MCF7/182R-6 cells are grown in the presence of fulvestrant.

Oestrogen receptor only. Upon withdrawal of fulvestrant, the resistant phenotype is stable and the cells express ER alpha, although at a reduced level. The MCF7/182R-6 cells do not express progesterone receptor. The MCF7/182R-6 cells express increased level of EGFR, phosphorylated EGFR and phosphorylated ErbB3 and reduced level of ErbB4 compared to the parental MCF7/S0.5 cells.
