The human BCMA coding sequence was inserted into the ROSA26 locus in MC38 cells. Human BCMA is highly expressed on the surface of B-hBCMA MC38 cells.

Targeting strategy

The exogenous promoter and human BCMA coding sequence was inserted into the ROSA26 locus in murine.

Protein expression analysis

BCMA expression analysis in B-hBCMA MC38 cells by flow cytometry. Single cell suspensions from wild-type MC38 and B-hBCMA MC38 cultures were stained with species-specific anti-BCMA antibody. Human BCMA was detected on the surface of B-hBCMA MC38 cells but not wild-type MC38 cells. The 2-B01 clone of B-hBCMA MC38 cells was used for in vivo experiments.

Tumor growth curve

Subcutaneous homograft tumor growth of B-hBCMA MC38 cells. B-hBCMA MC38 cells (5×105) and wild-type MC38 cells (5×105) were subcutaneously implanted into C57BL/6 mice (female, 5-8-week-old, n=5). Tumor volume and body weight were measured twice a week. (A) Average tumor volume ± SEM. (B)  Body weight (Mean± SEM). Volume was expressed in mm3 using the formula: V=0.5 X long diameter X short diameter2. As shown in panel A, B-hBCMA MC38 cells were able to establish tumors in vivo and can be used for efficacy studies.
