Tool Details

  • Tool name: hTERT-RPE1 mRuby-APC15 Cell Line
  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Parental cell line: hTERT-RPE1
  • Organism: Human
  • Tissue: Eye
  • Model: Transgenic
  • Conditional: Yes
  • Conditional description: Tetracycline inducible
  • Description: The hTERT-RPE1 mRuby-APC15 Cell Line is a tet-inducible APC15 reporter cell line. APC15 is a component of the human cell cycle Anaphase promoting complex/cyclosome (APC/C). It is required for progression from metaphase during cell cycle. The uncharacterised open reading frame C11orf51 has been identified in a systematic proteomic analysis of APC/C purified from HeLa cell extracts. Human C11orf51 is conserved in vertebrates and invertebrates and has homology to Schizosaccharomyces pombe APC15 (PM gene ID: 2540655), and Schizosaccharomyces cerevisiae Mnd2 (PM gene ID: 854843).
  • Research area: Cell biology
  • Production details: APC15 was amplified by PCR from a full length cDNA clone (ORFeome clone 100066673). Tetracycline inducible cell lines expressing APC15 IRES2 mRuby were generated using the FLIP in system and a modified pCDNA5/FRT/TO vector. The parental tetracycline inducible RPE cell line was created by random integration of an FRT site and a Tet repressor gene into hTERT RPE1 cells followed by selection of a clone that showed high levels of gene expression repression in the absence of tetracycline.
