  • Description: The product is a human cervical carcinoma cell line SiHa, transfected to stably express the protein cytochrome c (cyt-c) tagged with EGFP. The EGFP-tag enables easy identification of the cyt-c release in live cells upon apoptotic induction. The cell line can be utilized for studying the apoptosis process and to screen of potential candidate drugs that induce apoptosis. Stably expressing single cell clones with homogeneous expression of Cytochrome c_EGFP were isolated for high resolution imaging. The expression and functionality of exogenous Cytochrome c_EGFP was confirmed through fluorescence microscopy by its release upon apoptotic stimulus.
