Lung cancer accounts for more than one-third of cancer-related deaths and is one of the deadliest cancers worldwide. In 2015, 221,200 people were diagnosed with lung cancer in the United States, of which 158,040 died. Statistically, approximately 85% of lung cancer cases are diagnosed as non-small cell lung cancer, including large cell carcinoma, adenocarcinoma, and squamous cell carcinoma. NCI-H460 (human large cell lung cancer cells) is also known as NCI.H460; H460; H-460; NCIH460; NCI-HUT-460; NCI-460, and it was discovered by AF Gazdar and his colleagues in 1982 from a man with large cell lung cancer. This oncogenic cell line exhibits an epithelial morphology and expresses p53 mRNA like normal lung tissue. The NCI-H460 cell line is also unique in that it shows no obvious structural DNA abnormalities. In addition to being negative for neurofilament triad protein, NCI-H460 cells stained positive for poikilins and keratin.

BOC Sciences offers efficient transfection kits for NCI-H460 lung cancer cell line.
