Hela cells are derived from cervical adenocarcinoma, and are one of the oldest and most widely used cell lines in research. The cells are easily propagated, and grow rapidly. They express several major cell signaling pathways, and MAPK, p38, JNK, Akt signaling can all be readily detected. ATM/ATR signaling pathway constituents such as Chk1, Chk2 and p53 can also be detected.
Warning: these cells contain Papovavirus, and should be handled with care.
