That's certainly easy to believe. When I was a grad. student, we used to keep
two kinds of HeLa cells (and I don't mean two established "strains" like S3
and JW36 - these were supposed to be both JW36) - one for transfection, and
one for Adenoviral infection - because "our" cells didn't transfect well, but
cells with a different lab "pedigree" did transfect well.
