Vanderbilt Digestive Disease Research Center

GI Organoids Subcore

Core Services:
  • Utilizes the Immortomouse as a source of a conditional immortalizing gene in crosses with other transgenic mouse models that are relevant to gastrointestinal disease
  • Establishes conditionally-immortalized epithelial cell lines from gastrointestinal mucosa, pancreas and liver
  • Fully characterizes these cell lines with respect to their epithelial phenotype, the presence of the specific genetic mutation, and the presence of tissue-specific markers
  • Has established a “bank” of early passage cells
  • Distributes these cells to researchers providing the transgenic mouse
