Contributor Information

  • Name Richard Ferrero
  • Institute Hudson Institute of Medical Research

Tool Details

  • Tool name: Human AGS NOD1 KO (Clone 41A8) Cell Line
  • Alternate names: Human nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain-containing protein 1, NOD1.
  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Tool sub-type: Continuous
  • Parental cell line: AGS
  • Organism: Human
  • Tissue: Gastric
  • Cancer type: Gastric Adenocarcinoma
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Description: NOD1 responds to Helicobacter pylori infection in a Type IV secretion system-dependent manner. H. pylori causes chronic inflammation, a key precursor to gastric adenocarcinoma. AGS cells deficient in NOD1 (as generated by CRISPR) can be used to model gastric adenocarcinoma in the context of various pathogens. NOD1 regulates host epithelial cell responses. Upregulates antimicrobial peptides of the beta-defensin (hBD) family secreted by epithelial cells.
  • Research area: Cancer ; Cell Signaling & Signal Transduction ; Immunology
