Green Fluorescent HEK-293 Cell Line

Green Fluorescent HEK-293 Cell Line (aka LINTERNA HEK-293) has been developed through stable transfection of HEK-293 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 HEK-293 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 HEK-293 Cell Line also allow to stablish in vitro models for HIgh Throughput and High Content Screening.


Green Fluorescent HEK-293 Cell Line are suitable for both, in vitro and in vivo experimentation.

About HEK-293 Cell line:

Human Embryonic Kidney cells, aka HEK cells, HEK 293 or just 293 cells, are a cell line which originally comes, as their name indicates, from an embryonic human kidney. HEK 293 cells are popular for their ease of growth and transfection, making them a common cell culture in cancer research. In addition, high transfection efficiency of HEK293 cells produces exogenous proteins or viruses for pharmaceutical and biomedical research purposes. HEK-293 cells are useful for many transfection experiments, particularly the propagation of adenoviral-based and retroviral-based vectors.

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.
