A fluorescent reporter strain for sexing at the preimplantation embryos

In July 2023 "Mouse of the Month", we introduced Y-mtRFP mice (RBRC11535), which ubiquitously express red fluorescent tdTomato on the Y chromosome, deposited by Ayako Isotani, Ph.D. (Nara Institute of Science and Technology).

Add on cDNA Clones of 8 Plant Species to the Exp-Plant Catalogue

Resource information on cDNA clones of deposited eight plant species has been integrated into the Exp-Plant public catalog and is now available. You can check the clone information of each plant species by selecting the plant species from the “DNA” menu at the top of the catalog.

Information of genetic analyses regarding disease-specific iPS cells

In relation to the disease-specific iPS cells derived from Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), we analyzed two causal genes, SOD1 and TARDBP/ALS10/TDP-43. In relation to the iPS cells derived from Spinocerebellar degeneration, we analyzed the number of repeated sequences in 8 gene regions. The above results are available on our website.

Fungal strain isolated from fungi

The term "Mycoparasitic fungi" refers fungi growing on other fungi as parasites. Among notable examples are Hypomyces laeticolor (JCM 10758T), a parasitic fungus of Basidioradulum sp. and Acrodontium luzulae (JCM 39231), a parasitic fungus of Xylariales. Mycoparasitic fungal strains hold the potential to provide valuable insights into the dynamics of fungal associations and nutritional interactions.
