TRPM2-HEK293 Recombinant Cell Line

Catalog #: 90331
Size: 2 vials
Species: Human
Genbank #: NM_003307
TRPM2 channel belongs to the transient receptor potential channel (TRP) superfamily which is divided into seven main subfamilies. TRPM2 channel is a nonselective, calcium-permeable cation channel highly expressed in the brain, vascular smooth muscle, endothelial cells and immune cells. It is activated by oxidative stressors such as hydrogen peroxide, cyclic ADP ribose, and NADP, leading to an increase in the intracellular free calcium concentration and cell death. TRPM2 is a potential drug target in a variety of human diseases, including cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases.
Stable, recombinant HEK293 cell line expressing tetracycline-inducible human TRPM2 (transient receptor potential cation channel, subfamily M, member 2, accession number NM_003307).
transient receptor potential cation channel, subfamily M, member 2, TRPM2, KNP3, previously TRPC7
Supplied As:
Each vial contains ~1.5 X 106 cells in 1 ml of 10% DMSO.
Biological Activity:
N-terminal FLAG tagged human TRPM2 channel has been stably integrated into HEK293 cells and its expression can be induced by tetracycline (doxycycline). The tetracycline-inducible expression of TRPM2 was confirmed by Western blotting. The function of TRPM2 was characterized by calcium assay. TRPM2-HEK293 cells were pre-treated with doxycycline to induce the expression of TRPM2, then stimulated with H2O2, and calcium influx was observed. The H2O2-induced calcium influx via TRPM2 could be blocked by N-(p-Amylcinnamoyl) anthranilic Acid (ACA), a TRP channel blocker.
Host Cell line:
HEK293 cells
Mycoplasma Testing:
The cell line has been screened using the PCR-based VenorGeM Mycoplasma Detection kit (Sigma Aldrich) to confirm the absence of Mycoplasma species.
Instructions for use:
See cell line data sheet for detailed culturing and assay protocol.
Storage / Stability:

Store in liquid nitrogen immediately upon receipt.
