We have created novel HER2-overexpressing human ovarian adenocarcinoma cell line stably transfected with far-red fluorescent protein TurboFP635. Growth characteristics, adhesion capacity and morphology of the cells do not differ from that of parental cell line. The obtained cell line (SKOV-kat) was confirmed to have high level of expression of the tumor marker HER2 comparable to that of initial cell line SKOV-3. The SKOV-kat cell line is designed for further establishment of experimental fluorescent models of HER2-overexpressing human ovarian cancer that make it possible to optimize and reduce the cost of preclinical study of agents for treatment of this disease.
