The aequorin plasmid (+Ga16), which expresses the aequorin protein and the promiscuous G alpha16 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 for 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 (+Ga16) particularly addresses GPCRs of the Gs and Gi family enabling them to modulate intracellular calcium concentration. Terms and conditions apply.

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.
