AGS Cell Line Characteristics

  • AGS cell line grows adherently as a monolayer. 
  • This cell line does not have a tendency to form true foci. When seeded at low density in a culture dish, cells from monolayer culture instead of forming foci. 
  • It does not form functional adherens junctions as it lacks E-cadherin expression.
  • It does not form true multilayer culture even when grown in the same culture dish for a long time and regularly replenished with a fresh growth medium.
