Description: An EBV-transformed B lymphoblastoid cell line (LCL) derived from 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 mother, father and sister. This cell line was derived from 'Family 1 subject' as described in Svensson et al. 2009. N.Nat Med. 2009 Mar;15(3):306-12. PMID: 19234463. The Family 1 subject has a homozygous inactivating mutation within the splice acceptor site of exon 14 in the KINDLIN3 gene. This mutation leads to an overall decrease in KINDLIN3 mRNA levels and loss of protein expression.
