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.

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.
