      DescriptionMCA205 Mouse Fibrosarcoma Cell Line
      OverviewMCA-205 is a weakly immunogenic fibrosarcoma-derived cell line that has been used in many studies to induce tumor-reactive T lymphocytes, the key aspect of adoptive immunotherapy (2). MCA-205 cells are widely utilized as stimulators for inducing cytokine expression (3). The MCA-205 mouse fibrosarcoma cell line is an excellent model for studying the immune responses to tumor cells and for supporting the development of targeted cancer immunotherapies.

      Non-GMO. MCA-205 was derived from 3-methylcholanthrene-induced fibrosarcoma in C57BL/6 mice. Tumors were maintained in vivo by serial subcutaneous transplantation in syngeneic mice and single-cell suspensions were prepared from solid tumors by enzymatic digestion (4). From these cells the MCA-205 cell line was established and maintained in vitro.

      Background InformationCancer immunotherapy is a rapidly expanding field that has produced significant advances in cancer treatment. Understanding the interactions of tumor cells with the immune system is crucial to the development of effective immunotherapeutic approaches. Fibrosarcoma is a rare yet aggressive soft-tissue sarcoma characterized by frequent tumor recurrences and a high degree of resistance to radio- and chemotherapy (1).
