The CellSensor® p53RE-bla HCT-116 cell line contains a beta-lactamase reporter gene under control of the p53 response element stably integrated into HCT-116 cells. To construct this cell line, the p53RE-bla construct was transduced into HCT-116 cells by lentivirus. Flow cytometry was used to isolate cells responsive to Mitomycin. This cell line was validated for DMSO tolerance, cell number, stimulation time, substrate loading time, as well as Z'; and EC50 concentrations for Mitomycin. The CellSensor® p53RE-bla HCT-116 cell line is responsive to Mitomycin and can be used to probe p53 signaling, which is involved in DNA repair, cell cycle arrest, and in some cases, apoptosis. This cell line can be adapted for high-throughput screening for agonists or antagonists with compound libraries. Candidate drugs can be tested for dose response against this cell line. Academic and non-profit customers, please inquire for special pricing.
