Cellosaurus HepAD38 (CVCL_M177)

[Text version]

Cell line name HepAD38
Synonyms Hep AD38; HepG2 AD38; HepG2-AD38; Hep G2 AD 38; AD-38; AD38
Accession CVCL_M177
Resource Identification Initiative To cite this cell line use: HepAD38 (RRID:CVCL_M177)
Comments Biotechnology: Used in a bioassay that permits the large-scale screening of compound libraries for inhibitors of HBV replication.
Characteristics: Inducibly expresses an HBV genome under the control of a tet operator/CMV promoter. Upon removal of tetracycline the cell line produces viral RNA and secrete virus-like particles into the supernatant.
Sequence variations NRAS p.Gln61Leu (c.182A>T) (ClinVar=VCV000375874) (from parent cell line).
TERT c.228C>T (-124C>T); in promoter (from parent cell line).
Disease Hepatoblastoma (NCIt: C3728)
Hepatoblastoma (ORDO: Orphanet_449)
Species of origin Homo sapiens (Human) (NCBI Taxonomy: 9606)
Hierarchy Parent: CVCL_0027 (Hep-G2)
Sex of cell Male
Age at sampling 15Y
Category Cancer cell line
