Cell Line Terms and Conditions must be accepted before orders are placed. Additional agreement needed for commercial use.
PerkinElmer’s AequoScreen® double transfected cell lines are provided in two vials of frozen cells, each containing ∽2.5 x 106 cells. Detailed product information as well as recommended cell culture conditions and validation assay date are available for each cell line.
The AequoScreen technology is a generic GPCR technology that can be used with Gs, Gi, and Gq-coupled GPCRs and calcium coupled ion channels. Following receptor stimulation, increases in intracellular calcium enable measurement of the resulting flash luminescence signal.

Aequorin is a photo protein originating from the jellyfish Aequorea Victoria. The apo-enzyme (apoaequorin) is a 21 kD protein, which requires a hydrophobic prosthetic group, coelenterazine, to be converted to aequorin,the active form of the enzyme. This enzyme possesses 3 calcium binding sites which control its activity.
G protein coupled-receptors (GPCRs) are one of the most intensively studied drug targets, with up to one-third of all marketed therapeutics acting by binding to GPCRs. Therapies that target GPCRs include both agonist and antagonists that are used in the treatment of disease in nearly every major organ system and hold significance in several therapeutic areas, such as cardiovascular diseases, neurosciences, respiratory diseases, metabolic disorders, oncology, and rare diseases.
We know the importance of furthering GPCR research - and we answer the call with application notes, white papers, and end-to-end solutions including reagents, instruments, and tools for all aspects of research into today’s most promising drug target.
Aequorin and Photina cell lines – the alternative calcium flux assay. PDL-coated microplates improve your performance
We have shown here that signal intensity for the selected catalog aequorin cell lines is strong enough to allow its measurement by the non-luminescence dedicated FLIPR
