Green Fluorescent SK-LU-1 Cell Line

Green Fluorescent SK-LU-1 Cell Line (aka LINTERNA SK-LU-1) has been developed through stable transfection of SK-LU-1 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 SK-LU-1 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 SK-LU-1 Cell Line also allows to stablish in vitro models for HIgh Throughput and High Content Screening.


Green Fluorescent SK-LU-1 Cell Line are suitable for both, in vitro and in vivo experimentation.

About SK-LU-1 Cell line:

SK-LU-1 cell line was established from a lung adenocarcinoma (Grade III) of a 60 year-old Caucasian female patient. This cell line displays epithelial morphology and grows in adherent culture. This cell line expresses mutant K-Ras (G12D) and has homozygous deletions in the CDH6 and CDKN2A genes. These cells do not express the enzyme telomerase reverse transcriptase (hTERT) and consequently lack telomerase activity. This correlates with significantly reduced tumorigenicity in vitro and in vivo.

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.
