This is a collection of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) cell lines derived from metastatic sites of patients who underwent surgery. See chart for additional information.

|SK-RC-17||Soft Tissue||Not Determined||Yes|
|SK-RC-26a *||Lung||Not Determined||Not Determined|
|SK-RC-26b *||Lymph Node||Not Determined||Not Determined|

All cell lines were established in Dr. Lloyd Old’s laboratory, from patients undergoing nephrectomy at Memorial Hospital, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, between the years 1972 and 1987. Fresh surgical specimens were obtained from Tumor Procurement Services, Department of Surgical Pathology, Memorial Hospital, Memorial Sloan Kettering.
