HepG2 cell line was derived from the liver tissue of fifteen year old male with differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma. Epithelial in morphology, have a model chromosome number of 55. Not tumorigenic in immunocompromised mice. Secrete plasma proteins, such as albumin, transferrin, fibrinogen, a-2-macroglobulin, plasminogen. Cells respond to stimulation with HGH.
HepG2 cell line is commercially available from American Type Culture Collection (ATCC) and DSMZ (German Resource Centre for Biological Material)
