Tool Details

Tool Details


  • Name: JIM3 Cell Line
  • Cancer: Blood cancer
  • Cancers detailed: Human multiple myeloma
  • Research fields: Cancer;Drug development;Genetics
  • Tool sub type: Primary
  • Organism: Human
  • Gender: Female
  • Tissue: Blood
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Model: Tumour line
  • 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.
  • Production details: Derived from plasma myeloma cells from pleural fluid of advanced multiple myeloma female patient.
  • Additional notes: STR profiling showed that this cell line is of female origin
  • Cellosaurus id: CVCL_2533


  • Application notes: STR profiling showed that this cell line is of female origin
