Abstract

A new cell line derived from a thyroid anaplastic carcinoma, CAL 62, has been established in culture. This line is constituted by highly tumorigenic cells. Their epithelial phenotype is stable in culture. Immunochemical staining for human thyroglobulin is negative. Cytogenetic analysis showed a gain of chromosome 20, the translocation i (14q), and breakpoints of centrometric chromatine. These results are similar to those previously reported by other investigators. CAL 62 radiosensibility has been studied. The survival curve of the in vitro irradiated cells has been adjusted with a linear-quadratic model. This cell line is thus showed to be radioresistant. Cell line CAL 62 constitutes an appropriate model for in vitro studies of thyroid anaplastic carcinoma.
