Green Fluorescent U2OS Cell Line

Green Fluorescent U2OS Cell Line (aka LINTERNA U2OS) has been developed through stable transfection of U2OS 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 puromycin resistance gene:

LINTERNA U2OS 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 U2OS Cell Line also allows to stablish in vitro models for HIgh Throughput and High Content Screening.


Green Fluorescent U2OS Cell Line are suitable for both, in vitro and in vivo experimentation.

About U2OS Cell line:

The U2OS cell line come from the bone tissue of a fifteen-year-old human female suffering from osteosarcoma. Established in 1964, the original cells were taken from a moderately differentiated sarcoma of the tibia. U2OS cells exhibit epithelial adherent morphology. The human osteosarcoma U2OS cell line is one of the first cell lines and is useful in various areas of biomedical research. Proteins expressed by U2OS cell line include 11 protooncogenes (FKBP4, SRC8, PSD10, FUBP1, PARK7, NPM, PDIA1, OXRP, SET, TCTP and also GRP7.

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.
