Cell Line Origin

Human osteosarcoma

Cell Line Description

From an osteosarcoma of a 14 year old male. Produces high yields of interferon following superinduction with polyinosinic acid-polycytidilic acid, cyclohexamide and actinomycin. Antigenically, MG-63 interferon is more closely related to human fibroblast than to leukocyte interferon.

Application

Interferon-induction studies
Human MG-63 cell line has been used:
  • to investigate the cytotoxicity of acrylic bone cement extracts on MG-63 cells
  • to fabricate three-dimensional (3-D) niches and study the cell viability, adhesion and proliferation of MG-63 cells
  • as a positive control for immunostaining procedure
  • to study the interactions and effects of lysophosphatidate functionalized titanium on MG-63 cells
