Cell Line Description

UKRV-Mel-17 (ESTDAB-147) was established from the lymph node metastasis in a 48 year-old male patient with metastatic melanoma (skin stage IV). The UKRV-Mel-17 cell line is one of more than 170 characterized melanoma cell lines collected during the ESTDAB project (European Searchable Tumour Line Database) part of the European Commission’s fifth framework infrastructures programme (contract no. QLRI-CT-2001-01325). ESTDAB contains information on HLA genotype and surface expression of HLA molecules, expression of tumour antigens, antigen processing capability, production of and response to cytokines and chemokines, apoptosis regulation and expression of adhesion/accessory molecules. Such information allows researchers to identify cells possessing specific parameters important for studies of immunity, immunogenetics, gene expression, metastasis, response to chemotherapy, and other tumour biological experimentation.
