Cell Line Origin
Mouse 129 teratocarcinoma AT805 derived
Cell Line Description
The chondrogenic cell line ATDC5 has been derived from teratocarcinoma AT805. Cells showed a sequential transition of phenotype in vitro. They encompass stages from mesenchymal condensation to calcification. Bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) stimulated the sequential progression of early- and late-phase differentiation. Activation of parathyroid hormone (PTH)/PTH-related peptide (PTHrP) receptor resulted in inhibition of this differentiation capacity.
ATDC5 has been used to study cartilage differentiation.
