The Caov-4 cell line is an ovarian cancer cell line with epithelial morphology that grows in adherent culture. These cells harbor a loss-of-function mutation in the p53 gene and are sensitive to cisplatin.
This cell line was established from a metastatic site (fallopian tube) in a 45-year-old Caucasian female with adenocarcinoma of the ovary.
