Human schwannoma - (Mar/24/2008 )

Hello rolleyes.gif ,

Does anyone know a place where I can find human shwannoma cell lines?
ATCC has human schwann-like cells. I donĀ“t know what this is... Are there any other 'cell banks'?

Appreciate u're help...


I found this paper which sites where they got their cell lines. Maybe you can write and request these lines as well? Otherwise, check the literature to find a group who has used the cell lines you want and then request them or see where they got the cells from.

Journal of Pharmacology And Experimental Therapeutics

The Mitogen-Activated Protein Kinase/Extracellular Signal-Regulated Kinase Kinase Inhibitor PD184352 (CI-1040) Selectively Induces Apoptosis in Malignant Schwannoma Cell Lines
Raymond R. Mattingly, Janice M. Kraniak, Joshua T. Dilworth, Patricia Mathieu, Beverly Bealmear, James E. Nowak, Joyce A. Benjamins, Michael A. Tainsky, and John J. Reiners, Jr.

This is a quote from the methods and materials:
"Human malignant schwannoma cell lines ST88-14 and NF90-8 (a generous gift from T. Glover, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI) and STS-26T (a generous gift from D. Scoles, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, Los Angeles, CA)"


Thanks for the help, rkay447!

I think it would be easier if the cell were available for anyone to buy...
