NCI-H295R Human Adrenal Gland carcinoma cell line
Description:NCI-H295R was adapted from the NCI-H295 pluripotent adrenocortical carcinoma cell line established by A.F. Gazdar and associates (1990) from a carcinoma of the adrenal cortex. The original cells were adapted to a culture medium which decreased the population doubling time from 5 days to 2 days. While the original cells grew in suspension, the adapted cells were selected to grow in a monolayer. This cell line retains the ability to produce adrenal androgens. It is responsive to angiotensin II and potassium ions.

Description:Electron microscopic studies show many bulb gap junctions (BGJ).
