Cell Line Terms and Conditions must be accepted before orders are placed. Additional agreement needed for commercial use.

Overview

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.

Features:

  • Fully automatable and miniaturizable to 1536
  • Enables reduction in reagents and consumable costs
  • High signal to background ratio enabling detection of agonists, antagonists and allosteric modulators
  • Robust assay (Z′, CV values, solvent resistance)
  • Reduces the number of false positives from autofluorescent compounds in screening libraries
  • Option to work with cells in suspension to increase throughput
  • Amenable for use with calcium coupled ion channels and tyrosine kinase receptors

Application Note

AequoScreen aequorin-encoding Plasmids for performing aequorin luminescent assay starting from non-aequorin cell lines

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.

Aequorin bioluminescence assays on MicroBeta2 LumiJET for studying Ca2+-coupled GPCRs and ion channels

Aequorin-based Ca2+ assays represent a new paradigm in drug discovery research for cell-based assays for Ca2+-coupled GPCRs and ion channels. In the aequorin assay, cells co-expressing apoaequorin and the target receptor are first incubated with the co-factor coelenterazinein order to reconstitute the activea equorin enzyme.

Receptor-Mediated MAPK and Akt Signaling are Maintained in Gamma-Irradiated FroZen Cells

FroZen, -irradiated cells, are a well established product, that can be ordered as a consumable, and readily used to perform Aequorin functional assays (AequoZen) or cAMP assays (cAMPZen). While, for the G s–coupled receptors, an increase of cAMP is detected in such an assay, for G i-coupled receptors an inhibition of the forskolin-stimulated level of, cAMP is detected.
