Cellosaurus ACN (CVCL_1068)

[Text version]
Cell line name ACN
Accession CVCL_1068
Resource Identification Initiative To cite this cell line use: ACN (RRID:CVCL_1068)
Comments Problematic cell line: Probably contaminated. The STR profile of ACN and LN-464 are identical. SNP analysis (DepMap) also shows identity of both cell lines. We believe this is a melanoma cell line based on the presence of the BRAF V600E mutation as well as the RNASeq expression profile of LN-464 (DepMap) which clusters with that of melanoma patient samples. Originally thought to originate from the bone marrow of a 36-month old boy with a metastatic adrenal stage-IV neuroblastoma.
Part of: Cancer Dependency Map project (DepMap) (includes Cancer Cell Line Encyclopedia - CCLE).
Part of: COSMIC cell lines project.
Registration: International Cell Line Authentication Committee, Register of Misidentified Cell Lines; ICLAC-00623.
Population: Caucasian.
Microsatellite instability: Stable (MSS) (Sanger).
Omics: Deep exome analysis.
Omics: DNA methylation analysis.
Omics: SNP array analysis.
Omics: Transcriptome analysis by microarray.
