Red Fluorescent U2OS Cell Line

Red Fluorescent U2OS Cell Line (aka VAMPIRO U2OS) has been developed through stable transfection of U2OS 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 U2OS 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 U2OS Cell Line also allows to stablish in vitro models for High Throughput and High Content Screening.

About U2OS Cell line:

The U2OS cell line come from the bone tissue of a fifteen-year-old human female suffering from osteosarcoma. U2OS cells exhibit epithelial adherent morphology. The human osteosarcoma U2OS cell line is one of the first cell lines and is useful in various areas of biomedical research. Proteins expressed by U2OS cell line include 11 protooncogenes (FKBP4, SRC8, PSD10, FUBP1, PARK7, NPM, PDIA1, OXRP, SET, TCTP and also GRP7.


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.
