|Background:||The SW 626 cell line was initiated by A. Leibovitz in January 1974 at the Scott and White Clinic, Temple, Texas from a surgical specimen from a cystadenocarcinoma of the ovary in a 46 year old female Caucasian.
Although originally thought to be of ovarian origin , a recent report has suggested that the SW 686 cell line might have been derived from an ovarian metastasis of a primary adenocarcinoma of the colon.
|Species:||Homo sapiens, human|
|Disease:||grade III, adenocarcinoma|
|DNA Profile:||Amelogenin: X
