Characterization of a novel canine T-cell line established from a dog with cutaneous T-cell lymphoma


      • Canine cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL) has the potential to be used as a model animal for human primary cutaneous aggressive epidermotropic CD8+ cytotoxic T-cell lymphoma (CD8+PCECTL).
      • A novel canine CTCL cell line, termed EO-1, was established from a dog with CTCL.
      • EO-1 expressed CD3 and CD8 with a high expression of a functional CC chemokine receptor 4 that was biologically active to both human and mouse CCL17/TARC.
      • EO-1 may be a useful tool in the research for not only canine CTCL but also human CD8+PCECTL.
