Cell Line Description:

Epithelial cells from a histologically normal adult human prostate were isolated and subsequently transfected with a plasmid carrying one copy of the human papillomavirus 18 (HPV-18) genome to establish the RWPE-1 (ATCC CRL-11609) cell line.

Cells from the RWPE-1 cell line were further transformed by Ki-ras using the Kirsten murine sarcoma virus (Ki-MSV) to establish the RWPE-2 cell line (ATCC CRL-11610). RWPE-2 cells form colonies in agar and tumors in nude mice.
