Green Fluorescent COS-7 Cell Line

Green Fluorescent COS-7 Cell Line (aka LINTERNA COS-7) has been developed through stable transfection of COS-7 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 COS-7 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 COS-7 Cell Line also allow to stablish in vitro models for HIgh Throughput and High Content Screening.


Green Fluorescent COS-7 Cell Line are suitable for both, in vitro and in vivo experimentation.

About COS-7 Cell line:

The COS-7 cell line comes from the kidney of the African Green Monkey, Cercopithecus aethiops. The cells themselves most resemble fibroblast cells in humans and are thus often a.k.a. COS-7 monkey fibroblast or COS-7 fibroblast-like cells. COS-7 cell line has been established from CV-1 cells which have been transformed by an origin-defective mutant of SV40 coding for wild-type T antigen. This line contains T antigen, retains complete permissiveness for lytic growth of SV40, supports the replication of ts A209 virus at 40°C, and also supports the replication of pure populations of SV40 mutants with deletions in the early region.

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.
