Green Fluorescent COS-7 Cell Line are suitable for both, in vitro and in vivo experimentation.
About COS-7 Cell line:
The COS-7 cell line comes from the kidney of the African Green Monkey, Cercopithecus aethiops. The cells themselves most resemble fibroblast cells in humans and are thus often a.k.a. COS-7 monkey fibroblast or COS-7 fibroblast-like cells. COS-7 cell line has been established from CV-1 cells which have been transformed by an origin-defective mutant of SV40 coding for wild-type T antigen. This line contains T antigen, retains complete permissiveness for lytic growth of SV40, supports the replication of ts A209 virus at 40°C, and also supports the replication of pure populations of SV40 mutants with deletions in the early region.
About turboGFP protein:
tGFP is an improved variant of the green fluorescent protein CopGFP got from copepoda Pontellina plumata (Arthropoda; Crustacea; Maxillopoda; Copepoda). It possesses bright green fluorescence (excitation/ emission max = 482/ 502 nm) that is visible earlier than fluorescence of other green fluorescent proteins. TurboGFP is useful for applications where fast appearance of bright fluorescence is crucial. It is also useful for cell and organelle labeling and tracking the promoter activity.
