What's New

Publications

The publications menu item above now provides a list of publications related to the repository. This is an ongoing project where we use a variety of methods to build the list, including mining publications that reference various IDs such as Cell Line IDs and Biomaterials IDs from the repository. For some cell lines, the catalog application provides a link to publications related to only that line. See, for example, ND29492.

NHCDR iPSC Line Approved for Use in Clinical Trial

An important advancement with human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) was announced this month. The GMP iPSC cell line distributed by Infinity BiologiX as part of the NINDS Human Cell and Data Repository (NHCDR) was approved for use in a clinical trial in Germany. This is the first time that engineered heart muscle (EHM) from iPSCs will be used to treat patients with heart failure. Read the full announcement here.

Research grade GMP line added to the catalog

An issue has arisen regarding the research grade cell line (ND50038) made by Lonza that RUCDR is distributing as part of the NINDS NHCDR collection.  Recently it was discovered that this line contains a duplication in chromosome 20 in the BCL2L2 gene.  It has previously been shown that mutations in BCL2L2 can confer a growth advantage in culture.   

Further analysis has confirmed that while this mutation is present in the research grade line, this duplication is not present in the GMP grade line (ND50039).  In order to continue to provide a non-GMP version of this cell line, RUCDR has thawed, expanded, banked and performed extensive QC on a vial from the GMP grade stocks under non-GMP conditions. This new line (NH50191) has been shown to be karyotypically normal, capable of differentiating into all 3 germ layers, and expresses expected stemness markers.  In addition to these tests specific to stemness and pluripotency, the cell line has also been tested for identity, sterility (including mycoplasma) and viability.  To ensure that the new cell line is free from duplications in the BCL2L2 gene and any other significant deletions or duplications it has been tested by PCR for CNVs in the BLC2L2 gene and by CNV array as a means to broadly survey the genome.  Both the PCR and CNV array confirm that the new line does not carry the BLC2L2 duplication and can be provided upon request.  

This cell line is now available for purchase on the NHCDR web catalog as biomaterial BID00456 (under parent cell line NH50191).  If you have received a vial of the research grade cell line before this issue was discovered in October 2018, you can contact Dr. Jennifer Moore (moore@biology.rutgers.edu) to obtain a replacement vial.  Any other questions related to this issue can also be addressed to Dr. Moore.
