Did you try ATCC? If they do not have them, search pubmed and find a recent publication using these cells, then ask the author how to get them (if they did not list the source).

I've tried ATCC and did not get what i need. Search recent publication and ask their author sounds a good way, i'll check whether it can be work. Thank you relaxin~ :D

Cells that are growing in someone's lab for a long time may be contaminated with other cells. So you need to verify the cells before doing your experiments. Some journals require verification of the cell line before publishing your paper.
