The aequorin plasmid, which expresses the aequorin protein under the control of the CMV promoter, has been developed to convert mammalian cell lines into AequoScreen® compatible cell lines. It is a powerful tool which enables the rapid development and analysis of cell lines, already expressing a recombinant or endogenous G-protein coupled receptor of choice, to a luminescence readout. The aequorin plasmid targets cells expressing any protein that modulates intracellular calcium concentration (e.g., GPCRs within the Gq family or GPCRs that couple via a promiscuous G-Protein / chimera).

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.

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
