AGING CELL REPOSITORY

    The National Institute on Aging (NIA) Aging Cell Repository has human cell 
cultures from individuals with aging-related conditions. These include 
disorders of accelerated aging (e.g., progeria, Werner syndrome, Cockayne 
syndrome, Rothmund-Thomson syndrome, and Down syndrome) and cell cultures from 
familial Alzheimer disease extended pedigrees.  The collection also includes 
normal human diploid fibroblast cultures (IMR90 and IMR91) and a large 
collection of skin fibroblast cultures from subjects participating in the NIA-
sponsored Gerontology Research Center Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging. In 
addition, the Aging Cell Repository has human and animal differentiated cell 
cultures (epithelial, endothelial, and smooth muscle), human mammary epithelial 
and keratinocyte cell cultures, and fibroblast cultures from animals with 
different life spans. For more information or a catalog of cell lines, contact:
