  • Tool type: Cell Lines
  • Tool sub-type: Continuous
  • Parental cell line: HEK293-A
  • Organism: Human
  • Tissue: Embryo
  • Conditional: Yes
  • Description: The HEK293-A mRFP-ATG9 cell line is a stable cell line expressing mRFP-tagged ATG9 (human) in background of HEK293A cell line. It can be used to monitor delivery of membrane from the endosomes and Golgi to the forming autophagosome using live-cell microscopy and biochemical approaches.
