Cell Biology Core Facility

The strong need of primary cultured cells, plasmids and proteins productions, calls for the reinforcement of those activities as a central resource of expertise. Many IINS research groups which have expertise in cell biology have joined their efforts to mutualize resources and optimize efficiency. In addition, many groups specialized in imaging, electrophysiology or behavior can benefit of the access to an open resource in cell biology. IINS has thus created a common core service "Cell biology facility" that coordinates production of primary neuronal cultures, molecular biology tools and biochemistry. In addition, this core facility can respond to specific requests, pending agreement, to perform primary neuronal cultures, construct cDNAs of interest, plasmid handling, maxiprep preparations, protein expression and validation or production of functionalized probes. It also acts as a bridge with the FNB biochemistry core facility. The cellular facility is composed by 18 peoples, 1 working full time for the facility, 3 from the common technical support, 14 technical staff from Choquet, Groc, Thoumine, Perrais, Giannone, Mulle teams.
