Freebase

  1. U937 cell

    U937 cells are a model cell line used in biomedical research. They were isolated from the histiocytic lymphoma of a 37 year old male patient and are used to study the behaviour and differentiation of monocytes. U937 cells mature and differentiate in response to a number of soluble stimuli, adopting the morphology and characteristics of mature macrophages. U937 cells are of the myeloid lineage and so secrete a large number of cytokines and chemokines either constitutively or in response to soluble stimuli. TNFα and recombinant GM-CSF independently promote IL-10 production in U937 cells. IFNγ increases the expression of chemokine receptors as well as that of nuclear receptors for melatonin. IFNγ treatment enhances thrombin-induced IL-8 production and is required for the melatonin-induced production of IL-6. U937 can be grown in DMEM or 1640 medium plus 10% fetal bovine serum. Atromentin induces apoptosis in human leukemia U937 cells. The HLA alleles present in U937 cells are HLA-A*03:01, A*31:01, B*18:01, B*51:01, Cw*01:02 and Cw*07:02.
