Experimental Animal Division
In June 2022 “Mouse of the Month”, we introduced a GPI-anchored membrane protein Meflin-related mouse strains deposited by Atsushi Enomoto, M.D., Ph.D. (Nagoya University).
Experimental Plant Division
Arabidopsis FOX lines are transformed with Arabidopsis cDNA placed downstream of the constitutive promoter(CaMV35S pro.). Information on the genes introduced in 7031 FOX lines is now available on the Exp-Plant catalog.
Cell Engineering Division
- For providing most of the cell lines neither approval of the depositor nor research collaboration is required.
- We provide these iPS cells not only to the users in Japan, but also to the users in overseas, in addition, not only to not-for-profit intuitions but also to for-profit institutions.
- The iPS cells will be cultured on a priority basis upon requests.
Gene Engineering Division
Dr. Atsushi Miyawaki of RIKEN CBS deposited StayGold, a fluorescent protein that is more photostable than existing fluorescent proteins. We look forward to receiving your orders!
Microbe Division (JCM)
A palmicolous fungus, E. cinctus(Cainiaceae) produces unique synnema-like conidiomata consisting of two parts: (1) a carbonaceous and black basal hyphal cylinder covering a central column; (2) a central synnematous column expanding radially and apically, holding the black conidial mass at the capitulum, and enclosed by yellowish thin peridial hyphae.
