Green Fluorescent A549 Cell Line are suitable for both, in vitro and in vivo experimentation.
About A549 Cell line:
A549 cell line is an adenocarcinomic human alveolar basal epithelial cell line got through the removal and culturing of cancerous lung tissue in an explanted tumor. In nature, these cells are squamous and responsible for the diffusion of some substances; such as water and electrolytes, across the alveoli of lungs. A549 cells cultures in vitro grow as monolayer cells, adherent or attaching to the culture flask. Another characteristic of these cells is that they are able to synthesize lecithin and also contain high level of desaturated fatty acids. A549 cell line is useful as in vitro model for a type II pulmonary epithelial cell model for drug metabolism.
About turboGFP protein:
tGFP is an improved variant of the green fluorescent protein CopGFP cloned 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.
