Human Prostate Carcinoma Cells (DU 145) were derived from a prostate carcinoma patient. They were taken from a metastatic site in the brain of a 69 year old Caucasian male. DU 145 are not hormone-sensitive and do not express prostate-specific antigen (PSA). Cells are supplied in frozen vials with more than 5x10^5 cells/vial. Universal Full Growth Medium (TM001) is recommended to culture the cells.
