Three-dimensional primary epithelial-derived gastric organoids have recently been established as an important tool to study gastric development, physiology, and disease. Specifically, mouse-derived fundic gastric organoids (mFGOs) co-cultured with Immortalized Stomach Mesenchymal Cells (ISMCs) reflect expression patterns of mature fundic cell types seen in vivo, thus allowing for long-term in vitro studies of gastric epithelial cell physiology, regeneration, and bacterial-host interactions. Here, we describe the development and culture of mFGOs, co-cultured with ISMCs.
