Cell lines were validated by STR DNA fingerprinting using the Promega 16 High Sensitivity STR Kit (Catalog # DC2100). The STR profiles were compared to online search databases (DSMZ/ATCC/JCRB/RIKEN) of approximately 2500 known profiles; along with the MD Anderson Cytogenetics and Cell Authentication Core (CCAC) database of approximately 2600 know profiles. The STR profiles matched known DNA fingerprints or were unique.
