Genetically Modified Cell Lines / Isogenic Cell Lines
Isogenic Cell Lines for Drug Discovery: Isogenic cell lines represent a unique toolset for studying the impact of genotype on cellular phenotype. An isogenic cell line is a cell line that has been engineered from a parental line through the introduction of a targeted gene mutation. In doing so, the parental cell line inherently becomes a control line to which the engineered line can be referenced. Isogenic cell line pairs can be incredibly useful as tools for studying cellular biology, such as the impact of genotype on cellular phenotype, as well as for parallel, high throughput screening to enable the discovery of therapeutic compounds that exhibit genotype-specific toxicity.
Applied StemCell offers a number of homozygous isogenic cell lines.
