MC38 is derived from a colon tumor in a C57BL/6 mouse following long-term exposure to 1,2-dimethylhydrazine dihydrochloride (DMH)(1). It is one of the most popularly used model for the assessment of anti-cancer immunotherapies and is fit for the evaluation of efficacy and PD effects. At CrownBio, the MC38 model is available as a subcutaneous model. A human PD-L1 knock-in model of MC38 is available for testing human specific anti-PD-L1 antibodies.
