[Cell-biology] Hela cells and apoptosis

Hi,
I'm studying since few months apoptotic intracellular events in HeLa
cells. In a previous Lab discussion someone asked me why HeLa  cells
are so frequently used as cellular model for apoptosis studies. It is
obvious that, with Jurkat cells, Hela cell line is the most well
documented model but I was unable to provide biochemical arguments.
Does someone can help me?
Thanks
Sylvain
