We are excited to announce that two, stable, long-term desmoid tumor cell lines will be available for researchers to access soon.
With the support of the DTRF, Mushriq Al-Jazrawe, PhD, a postdoctoral fellow at Boehm Lab, has successfully created two stable cell lines that replicate the features of desmoid tumors. The stable cell lines can survive for long periods of time in the lab, making it easier to study desmoid tumors and perform large-scale experiments. One of these cell lines harbors a T41A mutation in the CTNNB1 gene, while the other has an S45F mutation. The cell lines will be available soon through American Type Culture Collection (ATCC).
ATCC is a private, nonprofit, global biological resource center and standards organization that provides scientists with the biomaterials and resources they need to conduct critical life science research. ATCC is one of the world’s largest suppliers of cell lines to labs around the world.
This project is only possible with our community’s support. If you would like to help champion desmoid tumor research initiatives like these, please consider making a donation.
