Red Fluorescent CHO-K1 Cell Line

Red Fluorescent CHO-K1 Cell Line (aka VAMPIRO CHO-K1) has been developed through stable transfection of CHO-K1 cell line with tFP602. This cell line expresses red fluorescent protein gene sequences as free cytoplasmatic proteins. Each vial of cells contains more than 3 million viable cells stably expressing tFP602 with Puromycin resistance gene:

VAMPIRO CHO-K1 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. Red Fluorescent CHO-K1 Cell Line also allow to stablish in vitro models for HIgh Throughput and High Content Screening.

About CHO-K1 Cell line:

Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells are an epithelial cell line from the ovary of the Chinese hamster origin. They are useful tools in both, biological and medical research and commercially in the production of therapeutic proteins. They have found wide use in studies of genetics, toxicity screening, nutrition and gene expression, particularly to express recombinant proteins. CHO cells are the most commonly mammalian hosts for industrial production of recombinant protein therapeutics.


About turboFP602 protein:

TurboFP602 protein is a red shifted variant of the red fluorescent protein TurboRFP from sea anemone Entacmaea quadricolor [Merzlyak et al., 2007]. It possesses true-red fluorescence (excitation/ emission max = 574/ 602 nm) that is optimal for detection via most popular filter sets. TurboFP602 exhibits fast maturation and also high pH stability. TurboFP602 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.
