CellEDIT - CRISPR-Edited U2OS Cell Line

Let us support you with reliable, high-quality engineered U2OS cell line.

Focus on your research and let us handle your CRISPR-engineered U2OS cell line.

We’ll handle the CRISPR editing so you can run your experiment faster and finish your project sooner. The U2OS cell line was derived in 1964 from a moderately differentiated tibial sarcoma from a 15-year-old female. The cell line displays epithelial morphology.

U2OS Cell Line Applications

 Cancer Research: As a model for studying osteosarcoma, U2OS cells help in understanding cancer biology, mechanisms of tumor development, and progression.


 Drug Screening & Development: U2OS cells are used to test the efficacy and toxicity of new anticancer drugs, helping in the identification and optimization of potential therapeutic compounds.


 Genetic Studies: These cells are used in gene editing and functional genomics studies to investigate the roles of specific genes and genetic pathways in cell growth and disease.


 Signal Transduction Research: U2OS cells are employed to study cellular signaling pathways, particularly those related to cancer cell proliferation and survival.


 Cell Cycle & Apoptosis Research: Researchers use U2OS cells to study the regulation of the cell cycle and the mechanisms of programmed cell death (apoptosis), which are crucial for understanding cancer and developing new treatments.
