"The cell line Ishikawa was established from an endometrial adenocarcinoma of a 39 year old woman. Cells can be commercially obtained from Sigma (99040201-1VL). However, it should be noted that the original source of these cells (M. Nashide, Japan) can spontaneously lose the progesterone and estrogen receptor. For details, see Nishida M., The Ishikawa cells from birth to the present. Hum Cell. 2002 Sep;15(3):104-17."
