KG-1 Cell Line:
The KG-1 cell line was established from the bone marrow of a 59-year-old Caucasian male patient who suffered from acute myelogenous leukemia (cancer of the blood or bone marrow). These cells exhibit myeloblast cell morphology, and express the HLA A30, A31, B35, and Cw4 antigens. KG-1 cells are EBNA negative, and respond well to colony stimulating factor (CSF). These cells are used for cancer biomedical research, especially related to bone marrow and leukemia. KG1 cells are a human myeloid leukemia cell line that was derived from the bone marrow of a patient with acute myeloid leukemia (AML). These cells have been widely used in research as a model system for studying various aspects of leukemia biology, including the molecular mechanisms underlying leukemogenesis and drug resistance. KG1 cells have several properties that make them useful for research. Firstly, they are relatively easy to culture in the laboratory and can be grown in large quantities. Secondly, they have a relatively simple karyotype, which makes them useful for studying chromosomal abnormalities in leukemia. Thirdly, they express high levels of various surface markers that are characteristic of myeloid leukemia, such as CD34 and CD38. Research using KG1 cells has contributed significantly to our understanding of leukemia biology. For example, KG1 cells have been used to study the effects of various chemotherapeutic agents on leukemia cells and to screen potential drug candidates for their efficacy against AML. Additionally, KG1 cells have been used to study the molecular mechanisms underlying leukemia development and progression, including the role of various oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes. KG1 cells have also been used as a model system for studying the effects of various growth factors and cytokines on leukemia cell proliferation and differentiation. For example, studies have shown that treatment with granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) can promote the differentiation of KG1 cells into mature myeloid cells, providing insight into potential therapeutic strategies for AML.
