Description: derived from a liver metastasis of a well differentiated carcinoma of the stomach taken prior to cytotoxic therapy; the tumor was passaged as a xenograft in athymic nude mice for three passages before the cell line was established; the cells express carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) and TAG 72, and are L-dopa decarboxylase (DDC) negative. They were minimally positive for vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) receptors, lacked gastrin receptors, and expressed receptors for muscarinic cholinergic agents. No evidence of amplification or rearrangements was noted with the N-myc, L-myc, myb and EGF receptor genes. The cell line expressed levels of c-myc and c-erb-B-2 RNA that were comparable to other cell lines. There was no expression of N-myc, L-myc, c-cis, IGF-2, or gastrin releasing peptide. NCI-N87 cells have a reported plating efficiency of 4.3%.
