Notch Signaling Pathway Notch1/CSL Reporter - HEK293 Recombinant Cell Line

Catalog #: 60652
Size: 2 vials
Species: Human
The notch signaling pathway is important for cell-cell communication, which involves gene regulation mechanisms that control multiple cell differentiation processes during embryonic and adult life. Notch signaling also has a role in neuronal function, embryonic development, angiogenesis, cardiac homeostasis, and bone regeneration. Notch signaling is dysregulated in many cancers, and faulty notch signaling is implicated in many diseases including T-ALL (T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia) and Multiple Sclerosis.
The Notch CSL Reporter – HEK293 cell line contains the firefly luciferase gene under the control of Notch-response elements (CSL responsive elements) alone with expression construct for Notch1 E (NOTCH1 that has a deletion of the entire extracellular domain) stably integrated into HEK293 cells. Inside the cells, the Notch1 E can be cleaved by γ-secretase. The active Notch1 NICD is released to nucleus and induces the constitutive expression of luciferase reporter. The cell line is validated for the inhibition of the expression of luciferase reporter using a known inhibitor of the Notch signaling pathway.
