A new human colon cancer cell line (PMF-ko14) derived from a peritoneal disseminated tumor has been established and maintained for over 25 months. In tissue culture, the cells grew in a mainly monolayered sheet with a population doubling time of about 27 h. Chromosome counts at the 60th passage ranged from 79 to 84 with a modal number of 83. Flow cytometry of the cell surface antigen expression indicated that CD49b, CD29, carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), sialyl Lewis a (sLea), and CD49c were positive in more than 70% of the cells. The nude mouse xenograft models indicated are: subcutaneous or intraperitoneal injection model, spleen injection-liver metastasis model, and orthotopic implantation-spontaneous metastasis model. As PMF-ko14 has highly metastatic activity it should prove to be a useful tool for research in biological behavior of metastatic colon cancer.
