The CellSensor® HRE-bla ME-180 cell line contains a beta-lactamase reporter gene under control of the hypoxia response element (HRE) stably integrated into ME-180 cells. To construct this cell line, the HRE-bla construct was transduced into ME-180 cells by lentivirus. Flow cytometry was used to isolate cells responsive to deferoxamine. This cell line is validated for DMSO tolerance, cell number, stimulation time, substrate loading time, as well as Z' and EC50 concentrations for cobalt chloride and deferoxamine. The CellSensor® HRE-bla ME-180 cell line is responsive to deferoxamine and cobalt chloride and can be used to probe the hypoxia signaling pathway. This cell line can be adapted for high-throughput screening of agonist or antagonist compound libraries. Candidate drugs can also be tested for dose response against this cell line. Academic and non-profit customers, please inquire for special pricing.
