Human papilloma virus (HPV) DNA-immortalized human mammary epithelial cells may provide a model system for studying the molecular basis of immortalization and its role in breast neoplasia. Cytogenetic analyses were performed on clones derived from HPV 16- and HPV 18-immortalized human mammary epithelial cells. The majority of the clones contained near-diploid karyotypes. The single most frequent whole-chromosome loss was that of chromosome 19. Regions that showed preference for deletion and/or translocation included 2pter, 11qter, and 15pter. Evidence of chromosome 19 loss was confirmed by polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-generated, chromosome 19-specific, dinucleotide microsatellite repeat polymorphism analysis.
