myelomas for heterologous protein expression?

Has anyone done much with the production of non-immunoglobulin proteins
from myeloma cell lines? Are protein expression vectors available with
immunoglobulin signal sequences or immunoglobulin promoters?  I think that
myeloma cell lines would be excellent producers for heterologous protein
expression, but I could find very little literature other than for
immunoglobulin-type proteins.

Thanks for insights on this topic.
