Green Fluorescent HeLa Cell Line

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


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

About HeLa Cell line:

HeLa Cells was derived from the epitheloid cervix carcinoma of a 31-year-old black woman in 1951; later diagnosis changed to adenocarcinoma; first aneuploid, continuously cultured human cell line confirmed as human with IEF of G6PD, MDH, NP. They are epithelial-like cells growing as monolayer. These cells proliferate abnormally rapidly, even compared to other cancer cells. HeLa cells have an active version of the enzyme telomerase during cell division, which prevents the incremental shortening of telomeres that is related with aging and eventual cell death.

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.
