When an individual donates a sample to the NIGMS
Repository, they are providing scientists all over the world with the very valuable opportunity to learn more about their specific disease and how their specific genetic make-up influences the symptoms and behaviors associated with their diagnosis.

Eighteen of the cell lines were derived from residual blood samples as described, and 6 were selected from the NIGMS
Human Genetic Cell Repository.

We confirmed the presence of all mutations reported previously by NIGMS
and detected 16 previously unreported mutations and sequence variants (Table 1), including a novel CFTR single-base deletion.

The research was supported in part by the National Institutes of Health (HIVRAD P01 AI82362, CHAVI-ID UM1 AI100663, R01 AI36082, R01 AI084817, R37 AI36082, R01 AI33292), the US NIH NIGMS
Biomedical Research Technology Program (GM103310) and the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative Neutralizing Antibody Consortium and Center.
Berg anticipates leaving NIGMS
at the end of June 2011, at which point an acting director will be named if the search for a new director is still under way.

In addition, DNA was extracted from two lymphoblast cell lines from FH heterozygotes (GM01448 and GM01460) that were obtained through the NIGMS
Human Genetic Cell Repository at the Coriell Institute (Camden, NJ).
