Isogenic Cell Lines

Clinically relevant cell models are critical for studies of molecular and cellular mechanisms of tumors, as well as for drug screening for cancer. With genome editing tools such as CRISPR/Cas9, ATCC has created isogenic cell lines with mutants of key oncogenes, which are ideal for identifying novel, personalized treatment regimens.

  • Engineered on commonly used tumor cell lines that are highly relevant to diseases and drug targets
  • Thorough molecular validation at genomic, transcript, and protein levels
  • Additional bio-functional characterization with specific inhibitors to demonstrate drug-screening application
