We have reviewed our laboratory's efforts to establish continuous human renal cancer cell lines. During the 16-year period of 1972 through 1987, 498 successive attempts resulted in establishment of 63 renal cancer cell lines. Of these lines, 46 were derived from primary kidney tumors and 17 from metastatic sites (lung, brain, bone, and lymph node). Forty-three of these lines have been characterized with regard to morphology, growth kinetics, anchorage-independent growth, tumorigenicity in… CONTINUE READING
