[Multiparametric study and cluster-analysis of the transplantable cultures of human cells]

Tsitologiia. 2009;51(1):20-5

Authors:

The cells of nepatocarcinoma (HEp-G2), adenocarcinoma of large intestine (Caco-2), embryonal kidney (HEK-293), neuroblastoma (SH-SY5Y), rabdomyosarcoma (RD), and larynx cancer (Hep-2) were studied by the methods of scanning cytophotometry, cytochemistry and cytomorphometry during 96 h of cultivation. The density of monolayers, proliferation activity, the number of dead cells, DNA content in the nuclei and distribution of the cells in the population by this parameter, total DNA content in the nucleoli (circumnucleolar chromatin), the number of nucleoli in the nuclei, distribution of cells by their number, the volume and area of the nucleus surface, total volume and area of the nucleoli surface were determined. The data obtained were used in the treelike cluster analysis of the cultures by Pierson correlation. As a result, the SH-SY5Y culture was put in a separate cluster, while Caco-2, HEp-G2, HEK-293, Hep-2 and RD cultures were placed in the tree of another cluster. The least transformed culture of neuroblastoma (SH-SY5Y) had no relationship with other cultures, which showed various rate of similarity. The cultured HEK-293, Hep-2 and RD appeared to be close to each other by all parameters. The parameters studied are of different significance for the formation of general pattern of the cell cultures. The greatest "weight" is carried by the parameters, which characterize the population as whole: the density of the monolayer, mitotic coefficient and the number of dead cells. They are followed by the content of DNA in the nuclei, the total area of the nucleoli surface, and ratios of DNA content in the nucleoli to DNA content in the nucleus and of total surface of the nucleoli to the surface of the nuclei. Other parameters are not so significant.
