Green Fluorescent HepG2 Cell Line

Green Fluorescent HepG2 Cell Line (aka LINTERNA HepG2) has been developed through stable transfection of HepG2 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 HepG2 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 HepG2 Cell Line also allow to stablish in vitro models for HIgh Throughput and High Content Screening.


Green Fluorescent HepG2 Cell Line are suitable for both, in vitro and in vivo experimentation.

About HepG2 Cell line:

HepG2 is an immortalized cell line consisting of human liver carcinoma cells, derived from the liver tissue of a 15-year-old Caucasian male who had a well-differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma. Hepatocellular carcinoma is the fifth most-common cancer worldwide. The morphology of HepG2 cells is epithelial and contains 55 chromosome pairs. HepG2 cells can be grown successfully at a large scale, and secrete many plasma proteins, such as transferrin, fibrinogen, plasminogen and albumin. HepG2 cells are adherent, epithelial-like cells growing as monolayers and also in small aggregates.

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.
