NBDC Research ID: hum0427.v1



Aims: In the field of oncology, many researchers generally use cell lines obtained from cell banks. However, cell lines for head and neck malignancies available from cell banks are limited especially for rare-type cancers, resulting in difficulties in elucidation of biological characterization of such malignancies and establishment of therapeutic strategies. This study aimed to establish cell lines of head and neck malignancies and to examine their tumorigenic abilities in immune-deficient animals. The established cell lines will be deposited to cell banks.

Methods: Genomic DNAs extracted from peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC), the primary tumor tissues, and the cell line were used for whole exome sequencing analysis.

Participants/Materials: PBMC and the primary tumor tissues were collected from a patient with external auditory canal squamous cell carcinoma, and a cell line was established from the primary tumor tissues. The cell line was deposited as SCEACono2 in RIKEN BioResource Research Center (https://cellbank.brc.riken.jp/cell_bank/CellInfo/?cellNo=RCB5515&lang=En).
