The T cell leukaemia line J.CaM1.6 was derived from the parent cell line Jurkat E.6-1 (ECACC No. 88042803). Jurkat cells were mutagenised with ethyl methanesulfonate and subsequently grown in phytohemagglutinin containing media for 2 weeks. J.CaM1.6 express a structurally Normal but functionally defective CD3/Ti complex. The cells fail to exhibit inositolphospholipid metabolism or Ca2+ mobilisation in response to anti-CD3 or anti-Ti monoclonal antibodies. They display resistance to anti-CD3 induced apoptosis, constitutively express Fas and are sensitive to anti-Fas induced apoptosis. It was shown that J.CaM1.6 cells are defective in early signalling events that follow TCR stimulation owing to loss of lck tyrosine kinase function due to the lack of exon 7 in the lck transcript.
