NOD /ShiLtJ Feederless ES Cell Line

Embryonic stem cell line from the non-obese diabetic (NOD) strain of Mus musculus (lab mouse). This ES cell line has a pure NOD genetic background and does not require feeder cells for propagation.

Download summary


  • Direct generation of animals in the NOD background, without the need to propagate polygenic animals through multiple generations

Unique features

  • Only available NOD ES cell line with feeder cell independent propagation
  • Robust cell line that enables straightforward maintenance and manipulation

Research area

Immunodeficiency; diabetes; cancer biology

Alternate reagents

While alternate reagents are available, they have drawbacks described below:

  • NOD/129 F1 hybrid ES cells, not pure genetic background, not feederless. Learn more.
  • NOD ES cells that require feeder cells for propagation. Learn more.
  • Feeder dependent NOD line, not robust, poor propagation. Learn more.
  • Feeder dependent, from different NOD substrain. Learn more.
  • Feeder dependent NOD ES cells. Learn more.
