Our stable recombinant AequoScreen cell lines express a variety of GPCRs which all couple to a calcium response. Upon GPCR stimulation and subsequent calcium binding to the aequorin oxidation of coelenterazine leads to emission of light.

AequoScreen® Double Transfected Cell Lines: Serotonin, 5-HT2C (edited) subtype. Human Recombinant, in CHO-K1 host cell. Two vials of cryopreserved cells are shipped per order. A detailed technical dossier includes sequence, culture conditions and pharmacological properties of the recombinant receptor. All cell lines are tested for the absence of mycoplasma. Terms and conditions apply. Some products are not available in some countries. Please inquire at your local sales office for more information.
The AequoScreen technology is a generic GPCR technology which 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.

G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) have been considered as a highly “druggable” target for many years, with over 40% of marketed drugs acting to modulate their function. For many years, radiometric techniques have dominated GPCR screening. However in the last decade the development of functional assays, where the effect of molecules is evaluated in terms of GPCR activation, has accelerated.In particular, measurement of calcium signaling and the development of molecular strategies which couple the majority of GPCRs to calcium signaling has allowed the use of high-throughput functional screening in GPCR research.
