EBV transformed B cell lines derived from Japanese (HEV)

We provide with B cell lines derived from healthy Japanese and the Japanese suffering from certain disease such as cancer. Those B cell lines have been transformed by Epstein-Barr Virus. In addition to cell material itself, we provide with information relating to age, sex and habit of the individual who donated source cells. Furthermore, about 100 cell lines possess the information regarding HLA haplotypes and we can provide them as well.
