Cell Line Description:
HCC1937BL is a B lymphoblastoid cell line initiated by Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) transformation of peripheral blood lymphocytes obtained from the same patient as HCC1937 (a primary breast ductal carcinoma cell line, ATCC CRL-2336). BRCA1 analysis revealed that this cell line is heterozygous for the BRCA1 5382C mutation, whereas the primary tumor cell line is homozygous for the same mutation. DNA isolated from the cell line HCC1937 is available as CRL-2336D.
