  • Description: The human breast cancer cell line MDA-MB-31 modified for use as a reporter cell line for bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) signalling. The cell line stably expresses BMP responsive element (BRE)-Luciferase. The cell line also contains a Renilla reporter driven by the thymidine kinase (TK) promoter to act as an internal control. BMP is a transforming growth factor ? (TGF-?) superfamily member.
