Definition Research databases, online information, co Research databases, online information, communication, reagents and tools including antibodies, adenoviruses, functional genomics studies, mouse ES cell lines, mouse strains, and protocols that are available to the scientific community to advance understanding of pancreatic islet development and function. The consortium's long-term goal is to develop a cell-based therapy, or treatments leading to controlled beta-cell renewal, in order to restore normal insulin production to diabetic patients. Submissions are welcome. * BCBC Antibody Collection: Available to the international research community, the BCBC will produce and maintain a list of available antibodies, and will rate the usefulness of the antibodies requested within the consortium. Antibodies are available through an online catalog and order form posted on the website. Custom requests can be made. * The BCBC Adenovirus Collection is a repository of replication-deficient recombinant adenoviruses. Individual viruses may be ordered. Upon request, the user will receive an aliquot of viral stock that may be used for further amplification in HEK293 cells. HEK293 cells are available though the ATCC, or from the investigator's own institutional tissue culture core facility, if available. * Genomics Studies Collection: This collection holds studies that contain information about genes expressed in cells of the pancreas and their transcriptional regulation. Pancreatic genes were also identified by microarray analysis of pancreatic tissues. * The BCBC ESC Line Collection features the collection and dissemination of information on ESC Lines that are useful for beta cell and/or pancreatic development research. The goal is to promote the sharing of these cells in an effort to facilitate collaborations by sharing reagents such as these. * Mouse Collection: The BCBC Mouse Collection provides for the collection and sharing of annotated information on genetically modified mouse strains that are useful for beta cell and/or pancreatic development research. * The BCBC Miscellaneous Resource Collection provides for the collection and sharing of annotated information that is useful for beta cell and/or pancreatic development research. * Protocol Collection: The BCBC Protocol Collection is a resource for the aggregation and dissemination of protocols relevant to beta cell biology. * TRAFEX - TRAnscription Factor EXpression survey is a searchable database of gene expression data. archable database of gene expression data.
EditorialNote Each of these databases should probably have their own entry, as per NIF resource curation guidelines.
