Rat mesothelial cell line f1-0

Transformed rat mesothelial cell line isolated from the peritoneal fluid of a female rat (Fischer F344) after 277 days of induction with crocidolite (blue asbestos) injected intraperitoneously.

Interest / Relevance: - Academic Research: identification of markers of neoplastic / transformed mesothelial cells, analyses of chromosomal damage induced by asbestos, studies of the mechanism of asbestos-induced oncogenesis, implication of fibrosis and inflammation.
- Industry research: antibody production, screening of new anticancer agents, identification of factors that increase mesothelial proliferation and migration.
- Therapeutic: development of epigenetic drugs, design of cancer vaccines, regenerative medicine applications.
Keywords: mesothelial cells , tumor marker , tumor invasion process , malignant transformation , proliferation rate
