Luciferase/GFP Dual-Reporter HEK293 Cell Line
Luciferase catalyzes the substrate luciferin in the presence of Mg2+ and ATP, resulting in a flash of light that decays rapidly. This light can be detected by a luminometer. Luciferase from the firefly has become one of the more widely used reporter proteins for both in vitro and in vivo studies, such as, gene transcription activity assay, the noninvasive imaging of reporter gene expression, imaging cerebral strokes, and tracking genetically engineered T cells. Luciferase/GFP dual-reporter HEK293 (HEK293-Luc-GFP) cell line is derived from HEK293 cells by transduction of ALSTEM’s pLenti-CAG-Luciferase-PGK-GFP-T2A-PURO Lentiviral Reporter (cat# LV311G) lentivirus, which contains Firefly luciferase encoding gene driven by CAG promoter, followed by GFP and puromycin resistance gene by PGK promoter. This cell line stably expresses luciferase at high level. It also expresses a green fluorescent protein (GFP) and is resistant to puromycin. This cell line will be a very useful cell line for non-invasive visualization in both in vitro and in vivo experiments.
