Green Fluorescent MDA-MB-231 Cell Line

Green Fluorescent MDA-MB-231 Cell Line (aka LINTERNA MDA-MB-231) has been developed through stable transfection of MDA-MB-231 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 puromycin resistance gene:

LINTERNA MDA-MB-231 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 MDA-MB-231 Cell Line also allows to stablish in vitro models for HIgh Throughput and High Content Screening.


Green Fluorescent MDA-MB-231 Cell Line are suitable for both, in vitro and in vivo experimentation.

About MDA-MB-231 Cell line:

The MDA-MB-231 breast adenocarcinoma cell line was obtained from a Caucasian female, 51 yeas of age. With epithelial-like morphology, the MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells appear phenotypically as spindle shaped cells. In vitro, the MDA-MB-231 cell line grows in monolayer and it has an invasive phenotype. This cell line has abundant activity in both the Boyden chamber chemoinvasion and chemotaxis assay. The MDA-MB-231 cell line is also able to grow on agarose, an indicator of transformation and tumorigenicity, and displays a relatively high colony forming efficiency. In vivo, MDA-MB-231 cells form differentiated adenocarcinoma (Grade III) in nude mice.

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.
