- Polylinker MCS: 1–50
- SV40 promoter: 51-246
- GLuc coding: 306–863
- Start codon: 306–308
- Stop codon: 861–863
- Signal peptide: 306–356
- SV40 poly-A site: 890–1111
- SV40 enhancer: 1117–1363
- Bacterial replication ori (pMB1): 2269–1681
- Amp resistance: 3300–2440
- Multiple samples can be obtained from the same transfected cells (i.e., before and after experimental treatments or at multiple time points).
- 90–95% of GLuc activity is found in the cell culture medium, with the remaining 5–10% detectable in cell lysates. This allows flexibility when assaying GLuc along with other co-transfected reporters.
- The activity of GLuc is high and the GLuc assay is sensitive enough to detect very small amounts of GLuc enzyme activity.
- GLuc is very stable in the cell culture medium so the GLuc activity detected reflects the amount of GLuc secreted by the transfected cells over a period of several days. GLuc can also be stored at 4°C for several days without any loss in activity.
- GLuc does not use the same substrate as Cypridina luciferase. Therefore, it is possible to assay both GLuc and CLuc independently in cell culture medium from cells expressing both reporters (2,3).
- The pSV40-GLuc Control Plasmid can be transfected into cells using any standard transfection and stable cell lines can be established using Neomycin selection.
GLuc 3´ End Forward Primer (20-mer)
GLuc 5´ End Reverse Primer (24-mer)
Product SourceIsolated from an E. coli strain NEB10b by standard DNA purification procedure.
Advantages and Features
- The pSV40-GLuc Control Plasmid can be used as a control for assessing the efficiency of transfection in mammalian cells. Plasmids containing other constitutive promoter elements are also available (see Companion Products Sold Separately).
- GLuc can be used as a stand alone reporter or in conjunction with other compatible reporters such as Cypridina luciferase (CLuc) (2). GLuc and CLuc are ideally suited for co-expression as both are secreted and highly active enzymes providing ease of use and sensitivity (2, 3).
