HeLa cell line is an immortal cell line derived from cervical cancer cells taken from a female patient, Henrietta Lacks, in year 1951. Hela cell line was found to be remarkably durable and prolific. It is the oldest and most commonly used human cell line in all kinds of biomedical research, such as studying the effects of diseases or developing medications and vaccines, and play an invaluable role in medicine.
The Hela-nucRFP reporter cell lines were transformed from the human Hela cell line by transduction of nuclear localized expression lentivirus that containing the Nuclear Localized Sequence (NLS) (product CAT#: LVP360-R ). It stably expresses Red Fluorescent marker (RFP) at its nuclear area. It contains the puromycin resistance. see details in Product Manual.
The following expression cassette was integrated into cell’s genome:
The RFP fluorescent signal only showed in each cell’s nuclear area, see the sample image below:
