Green Fluorescent HepG2 Cell Line are suitable for both, in vitro and in vivo experimentation.
About HepG2 Cell line:
HepG2 is an immortalized cell line consisting of human liver carcinoma cells, derived from the liver tissue of a 15-year-old Caucasian male who had a well-differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma. Hepatocellular carcinoma is the fifth most-common cancer worldwide. The morphology of HepG2 cells is epithelial and contains 55 chromosome pairs. HepG2 cells can be grown successfully at a large scale, and secrete many plasma proteins, such as transferrin, fibrinogen, plasminogen and albumin. HepG2 cells are adherent, epithelial-like cells growing as monolayers and also in small aggregates.
About turboGFP protein:
tGFP is an improved variant of the green fluorescent protein CopGFP 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.
