Description: An EBV-transformed B lymphoblastoid cell line (LCL) derived from the mother of a Maltese subject that has Leukocyte Adhesion Deficiency-III (LAD-III) with a mutation in the kindlin-3 gene. LCLs are also available from the subject, father and subject's sister. This cell line was derived from 'Family 1 mother' as described in Svensson et al. 2009. N.Nat Med. 2009 Mar;15(3):306-12.
