  • Conditional description: The cells were derived from ImmortomiceTM (Jat et al 1991 Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci. USA 88, 5096-5100) carrying a stable insertion of the conditional immortalising gene H-2Kb-tsA58, which describes a temperature-sensitive variant of the SV40 immortalising gene that encodes the large tumour antigen under the control of the ?–interferon-sensitive MHC Class 1 promoter. The cells proliferating culturing conditions: 33°C with ?IFN; and the cells differentiating culturing conditions: 39...
  • Description: US/VOT-E36 cells represent epithelial progenitors with potential to differentiate into sensory and nonsensory epithelial cells. The conditionally immortal cell line was established from the ventral otocyst of the Immortomouse at embryonic day 10.5 (plug in mouse designated E0.5 and birth at E18-19). At this stage the sensory epithelia have not differentiated, and the epithelium is competent to form most of the cells within the cochlear duct, including primary sensory neurons. VOT-E36 cell...
  • Application: Inner ear development studies; Gene expression and function of inner ear-specific genes studies; In vitro screening for gene activation and promoter analysis; Ototoxicity (prescribed drugs and agents that ameliorate their affects) studies; Studies on function of inherited deafness mutations; Functional analysis of ion channels, receptors and signalling pathways in vitro
  • Production details: Homozygous male Immortomice (originally derived from injected oocytes of CBA/Ca x C57BL/10 mice) were time-mated with wild-type C57Bl/6 female mice to produce heterozygous offspring. Animals were killed by cervical dislocation, in accordance with UK Home Office regulations. Otocysts were removed from E10 embryos under sterile conditions and then dissected to isolate the ventral region. Further selection of ventral otocyst explants was based on expression of the immortalizing gene (condition...
