Neurofibromatosis Cell Panel


The NTAP (Neurofibromatosis Therapeutic Acceleration Program) cell panel consists of 6 hTERT-immortalized wild type NF1 and neurofibroma-derived cell lines harboring NF1 mutations. These are highly genotypically characterized tools for research in drug discovery and therapeutics. With generous support from NTAP, the purchasers of these cells are eligible to receive up to 100% reimbursement from NTAP

ATCC determines the biosafety level of a material based on our risk assessment as guided by the current edition of Biosafety in Microbiological and Biomedical Laboratories (BMBL), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It is your responsibility to understand the hazards associated with the material per your organization’s policies and procedures as well as any other applicable regulations as enforced by your local or national agencies.

ATCC highly recommends that appropriate personal protective equipment is always used when handling vials. For cultures that require storage in liquid nitrogen, it is important to note that some vials may leak when submersed in liquid nitrogen and will slowly fill with liquid nitrogen. Upon thawing, the conversion of the liquid nitrogen back to its gas phase may result in the vial exploding or blowing off its cap with dangerous force creating flying debris. Unless necessary, ATCC recommends that these cultures be stored in the vapor phase of liquid nitrogen rather than submersed in liquid nitrogen.

Detailed product information



Through generous support from the Neurofibromatosis Therapeutic Acceleration Program (NTAP), purchasers of these cells are eligible to receive up to a 100% reimbursement from NTAP.  For additional information and to apply for reimbursement after a purchase, please contact NTAP at [email protected] or visit the NTAP Website.

 For study of Schwann cell biology, diseases and tumors. These cells are invaluable tools for dissecting the processes contributing to the formation of neurofibromas and possibly other diseases, and the development of disease models and therapeutics.

The collection contains “normal” (wild-type) NF1(+/+),  NF1(+/-) (heterozygous), and NF1(-/-) homozygous (neurofibroma derived) human Schwann cell lines.  (NOTE: Cell-lines generated under auspices of the lab of Dr. Peggy Wallace, University of Florida, with funding support by the Neurofibromatosis Therapeutic Acceleration Program (NTAP) at Johns Hopkins University)
