Fibroblast cultures originate from skin unless otherwise
stated. All cells in the Repository are grown in Eagle MEM with Earle's
salts plus 10% fetal calf serum. New samples are stabilized overnight
and then switched to this media. Penicillin and Gentamycin are added to
the media for establishing primary cultures. Cells are stored frozen in
liquid nitrogen in the above media containing 10% DMSO.

||(+) normal gene; (Y-) hemizygous for X-linked
(-) mutant gene; (+?) genetic status not determined; (+-(o))
carrier for a recessively inherited or X-linked trait as

confirmation; D = DNA confirmation; O = received from an
outside source; U = unclassified.

||Within each family, each member is assigned a
unique family member number. Cultures having the same MEMBER#
are from the same individual.
