Green Fluorescent HT-29 Cell Line

Green Fluorescent HT-29 Cell Line (aka LINTERNA HT-29) has been developed through stable transfection of HT-29 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 HT-29 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 HT-29 Cell Line also allow to stablish in vitro models for HIgh Throughput and High Content Screening.


Green Fluorescent HT-29 Cell Line are suitable for both, in vitro and in vivo experimentation.

About HT-29 Cell line:

HT29 human cell line is a epithelial-like cell line, which was established from a colorectal adenocarcinoma of a 44 year-old Caucasian female patient. This cell line is an important tool to develop xenograft tumor models for colorectal cancer in nude mice, they form well differentiated adenocarcinoma consistent with colonic primary (grade I). HT29 offers also a favorable experimental system for the study of factors involved in differentiation of epithelial cells. This cell line is also important as an in-vitro model to study absorption, transport, and secretion by intestinal cells.

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.
