EHS (Engelbreth-Holm-Swarm) sarcoma-derived laminin rich matrix
TMEN has developed a pool of EHS sarcoma cell-derived extracellular matrix for distribution to the cancer research community who work on three-dimensional models to study tumor-host interactions.
Novel antibodies to detect cancer stem cells and stromal cells
This resource consists of validated commercially available antibody reagents for cancer stem cells and stromal cell-specific genes or proteins (biomarkers) that are critical for studying tumor-host interactions.
Human xenograft tumor bank with characterized stem cell populations
A tumor bank of characterized human breast and colon solid tumors containing xenografts has been established. Vials of frozen tumor cells from each tumor type have been stored for use. Recipients would be responsible for amplifying the stem cells and serving as a central bank for their institution as well as other investigators outside their institution.
Bone Marrow Derived Cells from donor mice
The BMDC bank contains bone marrow cells from C57BL/6J and C57BL/6-Tg-(UBC-GFP) 30 Scha/J mouse lines in cryopreserved aliquots that can be re-infused as needed.
RCAS(A)-GFP – This is a avian retroviral vector for GFP expression in TVa mice. The vector needs to be introduced in DF1 cells for virus generation. Normally the DF1 cells themselves are introduced into mice directly.
RCAS(B)-DsRed - This is a avian retroviral vector for DsRed expression in TVb mice. The vector needs to be introduced in DF1 cells for virus generation. Normally the DF1 cells themselves are introduced into mice directly.
