A new human gastric cancer cell line (OCUM-1), which was derived from Borrmann type IV tumor of the stomach, was established. The cell line grew sometimes singly and sometimes in clusters, and continued to grow for more than 3 years. It's doubling time was 33.2 hours, chromosomal mode was 50, and nuclear DNA ploidy pattern was diploid. The cells could grow in nude mice. It produced carcinoembryonic antigen, carbohydrate antigen 19-9, and cancer-associated antigen SPan-1 and expressed epidermal… CONTINUE READING
