Red Fluorescent HEK-293 Cell Line

Red Fluorescent HEK-293 Cell Line (aka VAMPIRO HEK-293) has been developed through stable transfection of HEK-293 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 HEK-293 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 HEK-293 Cell Line also allow to stablish in vitro models for HIgh Throughput and High Content Screening.

About HEK-293 Cell line:

Human Embryonic Kidney cells, aka HEK cells, HEK 293 or just 293 cells, are a cell line which originally comes, as their name indicates, from an embryonic human kidney. HEK 293 cells are popular for their ease of growth and transfection, making them a common cell culture in cancer research. In addition, high transfection efficiency of HEK293 cells produces exogenous proteins or viruses for pharmaceutical and biomedical research purposes. HEK-293 cells are useful for many transfection experiments, particularly the propagation of adenoviral-based and retroviral-based vectors.


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.
