The SW 872 cell line was initiated by A. Leibovitz in 1974 at the Scott and White Clinic, Temple, Texas from a surgical specimen of a fibrosarcoma removed from a 36 year old male Caucasian. The histopathology evaluation reported an undifferentiated malignant tumor consistent with liposarcoma.

STR DNA Profile

Penta D: 9,10
Hypertriploid; modal number = 80; range = 66 to 81. The rate of higher ploidies was 8.2%. Ten markers were common to most cells. These were: der(5)t(5;?)(q31;?)1, der(5)t(5;?)(q31;?)2, der(6)t(6;?)(q15;?), der(7)t(7;?)(q36;?), t(15q16q) and five others. Both der(5) markers, the der(7) and t(15q16q) were paired. There were 5 copies of N20 and N21, 4 copies of N8, N9, N11, N14 and N17 and a single copy of X in each cell.
Tests for mycoplasma, bacteria and fungi were negative
