Please recommend a colon cancer cell line - what is the widely used colon cancer cell line? (Apr/24/2007 )

hi folks,

I need a colon cancer cell line. Please recommend one.

I need a colon cancer cell line that...

1. needs common media (RPmi+FBS)
2. is easy to transfect
3. grows fast/well
4. is not easily detached from the plastic bottom
5. is commonly used - used in a lot of published research papers on colon cancer

Thanks in advance.


HCT116 and RKO meet all your requirments.


You could also try COLO320 or LOVO


Thank you, both of you!!!
