Tumors developed within 21 days at 100% frequency (5/5) in nude mice inoculated subcutaneously with 10(7) cells
The cell line was established from a Duke's type B adenocarcinoma of the colon. The tissue was minced and cultured without transfer for 10 months.
The production of CEA in the ATCC seed stock was 1944 ng per 10(6) cells in 10 days.
