Cell Line Origin

Human Caucasian pancreatic carcinoma

Cell Line Description

An established cell line from an undifferentiated human pancreatic carcinoma. The tumour was taken from a 65 year old Caucasian male. The cells are large with abundant cytoplasm, exhibit a high degree of aneuploidy, have a tendency to grow on top of other cells, eventually growing free in suspension. Sensitive to L-Asparaginase.


MIA-Pa-Ca-2 has been used for the assessment of thyroid receptor transcriptional activity and for α-enolase immunostaining.
