A human tissue culture cell line from a transitional cell tumour of the urinary bladder: growth, chromosone pattern and ultrastructure.


PMID 5503601

Abstract

Cell cultures were made from 18 human bladder tumours. Three cell lines were maintained for seven transfer generations, but all had a "fibroblastic" morphology and a normal diploid karyotype. A fourth line has been maintained for over 80 transfer generations. This was derived from a well differentiated papillary tumour of bladder. Morphologically the light and electron microscopic structure of the cells resembled that of bladder tumours. The cells formed tumour nodules, with a similar structure, when transplanted into hamster cheek pouches. There is a stem line chromosome number of 48. Karyotypes of 60% of the stem line cells had one extra chromosome in Group C and one in Group D.
