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.
