MC38 (Colon Adenocarcinoma)
MC38 (Corbett el al., Can Res, 1975) is a murine colon adenocarcinoma cell line from a C57BL/6 mouse. The cells are adherent and have a fibroblast morphology. MC38 cells will form tumors and metastases post implantation into syngeneic C57BL/6 mice or immunocompromised mice.
MC38 cells are suitable for in vitro and in vivo experimentation. Both syngeneic C57BL/6 mice and immunocompromised mice can be used for in life studies, and will form tumors following implantation of the cells.
The following provides some examples of MC38 cells used for tumor formation studies.
