|I. General information|
|Background:||The RKO-E6 cell line was generated from the colon carcinoma RKO (ATCC CRL-2577) cell line by transfection with pCMV-E6 using Lipofectin.|
|Species:||Homo sapiens, human|
|Culture Medium:||MEM+10%FBS+ 1% Non Essential Amino Acids (NEAA) + 1mM Sodium Pyruvate (NaP)
We strongly suggest to purchase the complete medium from Cobioer.
|Comments:||The cells contain a stably integrated human papilloma virus (HPV) E6 oncogene under control of the cytomegalovirus (CMV) promoter. The HPV E6 oncogene causes a decrease in normal p53 levels and functions. The RKO-E6 cell line lacks appreciable functional p53. Disruption of normal p53 function in human colon carcinoma RKO cells with the human papillomavirus E6 oncoprotein results in reduced repair of u.v.-induced DNA damage and also loss of induced repair following cellular u.v.-irradiation.
Disruption of normal p53 function in human colon carcinoma RKO cells with the human papillomavirus E6 oncoprotein results in reduced repair of u.v.-induced DNA damage and also loss of induced repair following cellular u.v.-irradiation. The RKO-E6 cell line can be used together with its parental cell line, RKO (ATCC CRL-2577) to investigate the effects of p53 loss on cellular parameters such as p53 mediated transcription and apoptosis.
