Genetic Diseases

Genetic diseases are caused by mutations, duplications, deletions or translocations of genetic material within gametic cells. Mutations that do not produce lethality give rise to individuals that display phenotypic characteristics associated with each disease or syndrome. ATCC provides a wide array of cell lines from genetic diseases, such as Down's Syndrome, Cystic Fibrosis, Cri du Chat Syndrome, and Marfan's Syndrome.

Cystic Fibrosis Cell Lines

ATCC has cell lines derived from cystic fibrosis lung tissue and from iPSCs reprogrammed by episomal expression of the OCT4, SOX2, KLF4, and MYC genes.
