Abstract: Human uveal melanoma cell lines OCM-1, SP 6.5, and MKT-BR and the ocular melanocyte cell line UW-1 exhibited maintenance of some structural and ultrastructural characteristics of melanocytic cells. All four MoAbs, PAL-M2, NK1/C3, IND-1, and MAAMA against cutaneous melanoma-associated antigens stained positively all melanoma cell lines as well as the melanocytic cell line, suggesting that in vitro proliferation of melanocytes could modify their antigenic expression.
