Green fluorescent reporter vector to monitor transfection efficiency

Technical Description

The TGEX™-eGFP vector is a green fluorescent reporter designed to monitor transfection efficiency during transient gene expression in mammalian cell suspensions culture. This variant of GFP has the mutations S65T and F64L described in the original EGFP protein  (1) and the mutations S72A, N149K, M153T, I167T found in EmGFP. eGFP is very bright and can be seen even without microscope (Fig. 1). TGEX™-eGFP vector can be used as a single component during transfection to analyze transfection efficiency or at a lower level, between 5% and 10% of the total DNA, to measure efficiency during transient gene expression.

  • Measure of transfection efficiency in mammalian cells

  • Follow-up of transfection during protein expression by transient transfection
