challenge in choose the right cell-line - (colon, mammary gland, prostate, pancreas) (May/06/2010 )
In my new lab we want to test if some substances have any effect on cell proliferation/apoptosis/necrosis!
We are mainly interested in testing some colon, mammma, prostate and pancreas cancer cells - I have to decide which cell lines should be purchased for this purpose!
could any of you give me some recommendations which cell-lines are the "classical" ones to be tested???
thank you in advance!!
My picks of the most common ones would be:
Colon – Caco2
Breast - MCF-7
