Cellosaurus NCI-hTERT-CL5 (CVCL_JY25)

[Text version]
Cell line name NCI-hTERT-CL5
Accession CVCL_JY25
Resource Identification Initiative To cite this cell line use: NCI-hTERT-CL5 (RRID:CVCL_JY25)
Comments Characteristics: Overexpresses TERT; compared to the parent cell line, it has better adhesion properties, ability to be maintained in culture for longer periods after confluency and is more efficient in mucins MUC1, MUC2 and MUC13 secretion (PubMed=26074691).
Transfected with: HGNC; 11730; TERT.
Derived from site: Metastatic; Liver; UBERON=UBERON_0002107.
Sequence variations
  • Gene deletion; HGNC; 6770; SMAD4; Zygosity=Homozygous (from parent cell line).
  • Mutation; HGNC; 3431; ERBB3; Simple; p.Thr757Lys (c.2270C>A); Zygosity=Unspecified (from parent cell line).
