NIH 2/4 Cell Line

The NIH 2/4 Cell Line allows for the direct study of the dynamics of single double-strand breaks (DSBs) and translocations in living mammalian cells in vivo.

NIH3T3 cells containing a copy of the unique 18 nucleotide ISceI restriction site flanked by an array of 256 copies of the lac-repressor binding site and by 96 copies of the tetracycline response element (LacOISceITetO array). This cell line does not express fluorescent repressors.

From the laboratory of Tom Misteli, PhD, National Cancer Institute/NIH.

The Investigator's Annexe Part of The Investigator's Annexe program.
