  • 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-N33 cells represent migrating neuroblasts. The conditionally immortal cell line was established from the ventral otocyst of the ImmortomouseTM 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. US/VOT-N33 cell line has been characterised extensively by timed expression of inner ear neurons markers in conjunction with the transcription factor GATA3 under differentiating conditions in vitro. It has also been screened with Affymetrix mouse Micro-arrays. It forms exclusively bipolar neuronal phenotypes under differentiating conditions in vitro in the presence of FGFs and also following transplantation to the cochlear nerve in vivo
  • 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...
