Description

GeneBLAzer®RAR beta DA (Division Arrested) cells and RAR beta-UAS-bla HEK 293T cells contain the ligand-binding domain (LBD) of the human retinoic acid receptor beta (RAR beta) fused to the DNA-binding domain of GAL4 stably integrated in the GeneBLAzer®UAS-bla HEK 293T cell line. GeneBLAzer®UAS-bla HEK 293T cells stably express a beta-lactamase reporter gene under the transcriptional control of an upstream activator sequence (UAS). When an agonist binds to the LBD of the GAL4 (DBD)-RAR beta (LBD) fusion protein, the protein binds to the UAS, resulting in expression of beta-lactamase. DA cells are irreversibly division arrested using a low-dose treatment of Mitomycin-C, and have no apparent toxicity or change in cellular signal transduction. Both RAR beta DA cells and RAR beta-UAS-bla HEK 293T cells are functionally validated for Z' and EC50 concentrations of all-trans retinoic acid (ATRA). In addition, RAR beta-UAS-bla HEK 293T cells have been tested for assay performance under variable conditions, including DMSO concentration, cell number, and stimulation time.
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
