Neuromics constantly looks for ways to expand our selection of human cells so that researchers get what they need. We are excited to announce that we now are offering DU 145 cells (cat no. DU001), a human prostate cancer cell line. Better yet, we are offering them for only $479 through the end of the month!

DU 145 cells are one of the pillar prostate cancer cell lines used in therapeutics research. These cells were derived from a prostate carcinoma 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).

Even though we just got access to these cells, we've already generated some great data (shown in the image to the right and linked here) demonstrating that these cells express KRT18 and KRT19, two markers of prostate cancer.

Image: DU 145 cells were incubated with diluted primary antibodies KRT18 and KRT19, then with fluorescent secondary antibodies (anti-mouse Cy2 and anti-rabbit Cy3) and mounted using iBright medium (SF40000).

The introduction of these DU 145 cells follows our prior addition of GFP Expressing DU 145 cells (cat no. TR03-GFP) and RFP Expressing DU 145 cells (cat no. TR03-RFP) last year. You can find all of our cancer cells along with our popular CAFs here.

This is also a great time to remind you that all of our human cells are 10% during the month of August as part of our Summer of Sales promotion.
