DefiniGEN provide disease modelled MODY3 diabetes human pancreatic cells which are highly functional CRISPR gene-edited human pancreatic cells. Neonatal diabetes mellitus (NDM) is a rare but potentially devastating metabolic disorder characterized by hyperglycemia combined with low levels of insulin. The neonatal diabetes cell products display the disease phenotype in combination with general function comparable to human primary pancreatic islets. These cell products can offer disease modelling and drug discovery researchers unprecedented tool for elucidating the underlying mechanisms of this key form of monogenic diabetes.

  • Highly standardized cell product containing >97% human pancreatic cells with consistent performance and biologically relevant data
  • Disease circuit verified confirmed mutation in KCNJ11 gene encoding Kir6.2 subunit of potassium channels – CAT>CGT at codon 201
  • Phenotypic analysis of the cells using GSIS assays demonstrates that the insulin response to glucose challenge is dysfunctional in these disease modelled cell products in contrast to DefiniGEN’s isogenic wild-type control pancreatic cell products.

Def-PANC MODY3 Cell Morphology

Genetic information and phenotypic response confirm Def-PANC MODY3 cells are an effective model of Monogenic Diabetes.


Figure 1. Def-PANC MODY3 cells display aberrant morphology in both monolayer and islet culture.

Disease Circuit Verification

MODY3 pancreatic disease model with mutation in HNF1-alpha transcription factor gene – insertion of C at codon 872 producing frameshift mutation – isogenic control available.
