The SW-982 cell line was initiated by A. Leibovitz in 1974 at the Scott and White Clinic, Temple, Texas from a surgical specimen of a biphasic synovial sarcoma removed from a 25 year old female Caucasian. The histopathology evaluation reported an undifferentiated malignant tumor consistent with liposarcoma.

STR DNA Profile
Penta E: 13,15
Penta D: 10,13
Hyperdiploid; modal number = 48; range = 42 to 58. The rate of higher ploidies was 1.6%.Nine markers were common to all cells. These were: t(1q4q), del(5)(q31;q33), der(9)t(4;9)(q11;p24), t(8q12p), t(9q13q) and four others. Double minutes (DM) were seen in some cells (usually only one copy). Normal N9 was absent, N4, N8, and N13 were consistently single-copied and the X was double-copied.
Tests for mycoplasma, bacteria and fungi were negative
