This is the complete description of the cell line that you selected.
By clicking on a generic term (e.g., SPECIES) you will go to the corresponding index (e.g., index of species), while by clicking on a specific term (e.g., retinoblastoma) you will go to the list of corresponding cell lines (e.g., retionoblastoma cell lines).

TGP 52 has been isolated from an islet tumour arising in the pancreas of a transgenic Tg (E1a-1-SV40E) Bri18 mouse. These mice carry a pseudogene construct composed of a pancreatic specific elastase-1 promoter linked to the SV40T antigen and thereby represent an animal model for pancreatic carcinogenesis. TGP 52 cells are SV40T antigen positive and secrete somatostatin, it is one of a series of pancreatic tumour lines deposited at ECACC. Cells transiently produce insulin in culture followed by somatostatin.
