Green Fluorescent CT26 Cell Line

Green Fluorescent CT26 Cell Line (aka LINTERNA CT26) has been developed through stable transfection of CT26 cell line with tGFP. This cell line expresses green fluorescent protein gene sequences as free cytoplasmatic proteins. Each vial of cells contains more than 3 million viable cells stably expressing tGFP with G418 resistance gene:

LINTERNA CT26 Cell line is ready to use in cell-based assay applications. This stably transfected clonal cell line provides consistent levels of expression, which helps simplify the interpretation of results. Green Fluorescent CT26 Cell Line also allow to stablish in vitro models for HIgh Throughput and High Content Screening.


Green Fluorescent CT26 Cell Line are suitable for both, in vitro and in vivo experimentation.

About CT26 Cell line:

Murine CT26 cells were developed in 1975 by exposing BALB/c mice to N-nitroso-N-methylurethane (NMU), resulting in a rapid-growing grade IV carcinoma that is easily implanted and readily metastasizes. CT26 colon carcinoma is one of the most common cell lines in drug development. Numerous cytotoxic agents as well as therapeutics targeting specific signaling pathways have been studied with these cells. Moreover, as the CT26 model in BALB/c mice provides a syngeneic in vivo test system, it is frequently a good model for developing and testing immunotherapeutic concepts.

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.
