Cell Line Origin

Human Caucasian prostate adenocarcinoma

Cell Line Description

Established from a grade 4 prostatic adenocarcinoma from a 62 year old male Caucasian. The cells grow in agar and produce tumours in nude mice. Exhibit low acid phosphatase and testosterone-5-α reductase activity. The Y chromosome could not be detected in this cell line by short tandem repeat (STR)-PCR analysis when tested at ECACC. It is a known phenomenon that due to the increased genetic instability of cancer cell lines the Y chromosome can be rearranged or lost resulting in lack of detection. The cell line is identical to the source provided by the depositor based on the STR-PCR analysis.

Application

PC-3 cell line has been used to study the antiproliferative effects of F. mughlea Pesmen on cancer cells. It has also been used to study the effects of palmitoylcarnitine (palcar) on the gene expression and pro-inflammatory pathways in prostate cancer.
