Green Fluorescent CHO-K1 Cell Line

Green Fluorescent CHO-K1 Cell Line (aka LINTERNA CHO-K1) has been developed through stable transfection of CHO-K1 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 CHO-K1 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 CHO-K1 Cell Line also allow to stablish in vitro models for HIgh Throughput and High Content Screening.


Green Fluorescent CHO-K1 Cell Line are suitable for both, in vitro and in vivo experimentation.

About CHO-K1 Cell line:

Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells are an epithelial cell line from the ovary of the Chinese hamster origin. They are useful tools in both, biological and medical research and commercially in the production of therapeutic proteins. They have found wide use in studies of genetics, toxicity screening, nutrition and gene expression, particularly to express recombinant proteins. CHO cells are the most commonly mammalian hosts for industrial production of recombinant protein therapeutics.

About turboGFP protein:

tGFP is an improved variant of the green fluorescent protein CopGFP cloned 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.
