colon The part of the large intestine that extends from the cecum to the rectum.
colorectal cancer cell
cytotoxic T-lymphocyte Subset of T-lymphocytes (mostly CD8+) responsible for lysing target cells and for killing virus-infected cells.
GaMG cell Human glioblastoma cell line.
HCC-1143 disease: primary ductal carcinoma
HCC-1599 disease: primary ductal carcinoma
HCC-1937 cell A primary ductal breast carcinoma cell line, initiated from a primary ductal carcinoma on October 13, 1995. The tumor was classified as TNM Stage IIB, grade 3.
HCC-202 disease: primary ductal carcinoma
HCC-2218 disease: primary ductal carcinoma
heart 1: A hollow muscular organ of vertebrate animals that by its rhythmic contraction acts as a force pump maintaining the circulation of the blood. 2: A structure in an invertebrate animal functionally analogous to the vertebrate heart.
HEK-293 cell Established from a human primary embryonal kidney transformed by adenovirus type 5.
HeLa cell Human cervix carcinoma established from the epitheloid cervix carcinoma of a 31-year-old black woman in 1951. Later diagnosis changed to adenocarcinoma, first aneuploid, continuously cultured human cell line.
HeLa-S3 cell Human cervix carcinoma cell line is a subclone of its parent HELA derived in 1955.
helper T-lymphocyte A T-cell that participates in an immune response by recognizing a foreign antigen and secreting lymphokines to activate T cell and B cell proliferation, that usually carries CD4 molecular markers on its cell surface, and that is reduced to 20 percent or less of normal numbers in AIDS.
Hep-G2 cell Human hepatocellular carcinoma, established from the tumor tissue of a 15-year-old argentine boy with hepatocellular carcinoma in 1975.
HES-3 cell or tissue derived from stem_cells
HMELonza cell or tissue derived from breast
HMEpC cell Human Mammary Epithelial Cells (HMEpC) are derived from normal adult mammary glands.
HMT-3522 cell Non-tumorigenic immortalized human breast epithelial cell line, derived from a fibrocystic breast lesion.
JURKAT cell Human T cell leukemia, established from the peripheral blood of a 14-year-old boy with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) at first relapse in 1976; often this cell line is called JM (JURKAT and JM are derived from the same patient and are sister clones), occasionally JM may be a subclone with somewhat divergent features.
K-562 cell Human chronic myeloid leukemia in blast crisis established from the pleural effusion of a 53-year-old woman with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) in blast crisis in 1970.
liver 1: A large very vascular glandular organ of vertebrates that secretes bile and causes important changes in many of the substances contained in the blood (as by converting sugars into glycogen which it stores up until required and by forming urea). 2: Any of various large compound glands associated with the digestive tract of invertebrate animals and probably concerned with the secretion of digestive enzymes.
LNCaP cell Human prostate carcinoma, established from the left supraclavicular lymph node metastasis from a 50-year-old man with prostate carcinoma in 1977; cells were described to be androgen-sensitive.
lung One of the usually paired compound saccular thoracic organs that constitute the basic respiratory organ of air-breathing vertebrates.
lymphoblastoid cell line Human cell line from tissue infected with Epstein-Barr virus, resembling a lymphoblast.
M14 cell The human melanoma cell line M14 has been established from surgically removed melanoma metastases.
MCF-10A cell Human mammary epithelial cell line.
MCF-7 cell Human breast adenocarcinoma, established from the pleural effusion of a 69-year-old caucasian woman with metastatic mammary carcinoma (after radio- and hormone therapy) in 1970. Cells were described of being positive for cytoplasmic estrogen receptors and having the capability to form domes.
MDA-MB-453 cell Human breast carcinoma cell line; established from an effusion of a 48-year-old woman with breast carcinoma in 1976.
MFM-223 cell Human breast carcinoma; established from the pleural effusion of a post-menopausal breast cancer patient without any prior treatment (tumor: widespread ductal mammary carcinoma T4 N2 M1 with histological grade III); cells were described to express androgen, estrogen and progesterone receptors.
natural killer cell A large granular lymphocyte capable of killing a tumor or microbial cell without prior exposure to the target cell and without having it presented with or marked by a histocompatibility antigen.
NFF cell or tissue derived from skin
non-small cell lung cancer cell line
ovary One of the typically paired essential female reproductive organs that produce eggs and in vertebrates female sex hormones.
OVCAR-8/ADR cell Multidrug-resistant derivative of OVCAR-8.
pancreas A large lobulated gland of vertebrates that secretes digestive enzymes and the hormones insulin and glucagon.
PBMC cell line
PC-3 cell Human prostate carcinoma cell line; established from the bone marrow metastasis isolated post-mortem from a 62-year-old Caucasian man with grade IV prostate cancer, poorly differentiated adenocarcinoma, after androgen suppression therapy; described to form tumors in nude mice, to grow in soft agar, and to be unresponsive to androgen treatment.
placenta The vascular organ in mammals except monotremes and marsupials that unites the fetus to the maternal uterus and mediates its metabolic exchanges through a more or less intimate association of uterine mucosal with chorionic and usually allantoic tissues; also: an analogous organ in another animal.
prostate gland A firm partly muscular partly glandular body that is situated about the base of the mammalian male urethra and secretes an alkaline viscid fluid which is a major constituent of the ejaculatory fluid.
rectum The terminal part of the intestine from the sigmoid flexure to the anus.
retina The sensory membrane that lines the eye, is composed of several layers including one containing the rods and cones, and functions as the immediate instrument of vision by receiving the image formed by the lens and converting it into chemical and nervous signals which reach the brain by way of the optic nerve.
RKO cell Human colon carcinoma cell line. RKO is a poorly differentiated colon carcinoma cell line developed by Michael Brattain. The RKO cell line is the parental cell line (isogenic) of RKO-E6 and RKO-A545-1.
SK-N-BE(2) cell The SK-N-BE(2) neuroblastoma cell line was established in November of 1972 from a bone marrow biopsy taken from child with disseminated neuroblastoma after repeated courses of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.
