      DescriptionID8 Mouse Ovarian Surface Epithelial Cell Line
      OverviewID8 is one of 10 clonal lines established from late passaged C57BL/6 murine ovarian surface epithelial cells (MOSEC) (1). Intraperitoneal injection of each of the 10 clonal lines into C57BL/6 mice resulted in formation of peritoneal tumors and ascitic fluid. Of the 10 clonal lines, ID8 exhibited the highest tumor load. ID8 cell line is a highly published and well characterized cell line and is frequently used as a syngeneic mouse model for ovarian cancer.

      • ID8/MOSEC
      Background InformationOvarian cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women. The disease is frequently diagnosed at later stages, with tumors detected throughout the peritoneal cavity. Approximately 90% of ovarian tumors arise from ovarian surface epithelial cells (2). Human and mouse ovarian surface epithelial cells (OSE) have been isolated and are used to develop ovarian cancer models. These models typically involve injection of the human/mouse OSE cells subcutaneously, intraperitoneally or orthotopically into immune deficient mice. A common drawback to these models is the absence of an intact immune system in the host mice.

      In 2000, an immune-competent syngeneic mouse model for ovarian cancer was reported (1). Mouse ovarian surface epithelial cells (MOSEC) isolated from C57BL/6 mice were found to spontaneously transform into malignant tumorigenic cells following prolonged passages in vitro (1). Late passage MOSEC lost the classical “cobblestone” contact-inhibited in vitro properties reminiscent of normal epithelial cells and instead grew as multi-layered cell clusters indicative of transformed cells. Intraperitoneal injection of late passaged MOSEC into athymic and normal, immune-intact, syngeneic C57BL/6 mice gave rise to tumors throughout the abdominal cavity like those observed in women with Stage III and IV cancer (1). MOSEC are thus useful syngeneic mouse models to study the role of the immune system in the establishment and progression of ovarian cancer.
