    The National Institute of General Medical Sciences' Human Genetic Mutant 
Cell Repository would like to obtain blood to establish cell cultures from well-
documented patients with various genetic diseases for distribution to the 
scientific community. Some of the diseases for which the Repository is 
soliciting specimens include peroxisomal or mitochondrial disorders, 
chondrodystrophies, neurologic disorders involving expanded trinucleotide 
repeats, Angelman, Bloom, or Rett syndromes, glycogen storage diseases with 
characterized mutations, Mendelian inherited muscular neuropathies, macrosomia 
or ichthyosis syndromes, congenital adrenal hyperplasia, familial breast, 
colon, or prostate cancer, and subjects with chromosomal aberrations. 
Additionally, the Repository would like to acquire samples from well-documented 
extended families with inflammatory bowel disease, hypertension, 
arteriosclerosis, glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, and autism. Prior to submitting 
samples, investigators should contact Richard A. Mulivor, Ph.D., at the Coriell 
Cell Repositories, 401 Haddon Avenue, Camden, New Jersey 08103. Telephone: 
(609)-757-9697; Fax: (609)-757-9737.
