Tool Details

  • Tool name: JIM3 Cell Line
  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Tool sub-type: Primary
  • Parental cell line:
  • Organism: Human
  • Tissue: Blood
  • Gender: Female
  • Cancer type: Human multiple myeloma
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Conditional: Yes
  • Description: JIM3 was established from plasma myeloma cells derived from pleural fluid of an advanced multiple myeloma patient, and is homoplastic with the cell line JIM1. It allows in vitro study and comparison of genetic instability in myeloma tumour lines and in vitro study of the effects of DNA repair deficiency in myeloma tumour lines. JIM3 shows typical plasma cell phenotype (CD38, PCA-1 8A and CD24 positive), deficient in DNA repair.
  • Research area: Cancer ; DNA Damage and Repair ; Drug Discovery & Development

  • For Research Use Only
