Red Fluorescent SK-BR-3 Cell Line are suitable for both, in vitro and in vivo experimentation.
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.
