Red Fluorescent SK-BR-3 Cell Line

Red Fluorescent SK-BR-3 Cell Line (aka VAMPIRO SK-BR-3) has been developed through stable transfection of SK-BR-3 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 G418 resistance gene:

VAMPIRO SK-BR-3 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 SK-BR-3 Cell Line also allows to stablish in vitro models for High Throughput and High Content Screening.

About SK-BR-3 Cell line:

SK-BR-3 is a human breast cancer cell line that overexpresses the Her2 (Neu/ErbB-2) gene product. These cells display an epithelial morphology in tissue culture and are also capable of forming poorly differentiated tumors in immunocompromised mice. Derivative cells and products got from SK-BR-3 cells are often useful as positive controls in assays for Her2. In addition, the cell line is also a useful preclinical model to screen for therapeutic agents targeting Her2 and to delineate mechanisms of resistance to Her2-targeted therapies.


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.
