Description

Premo™ Autophagy Sensor combines the selectivity of a LC3B-red fluorescent protein (RFP) chimera with the transduction efficiency of BacMam technology, enabling unambiguous visualization of this protein. BacMam reagents (insect Baculovirus with a Mammalian promoter) are non-replicating in mammalian cells and thus safe to handle. They are also non-cytotoxic and ready-to-use. Unlike expression vectors, BacMam reagents enable titratable and reproducible expression and offer high co-transduction efficiency, therefore multiple BacMam reagents can readily be used in the same cell. Recent improvements made to the BacMam system enable efficient transduction in a wider variety of cells including neurons and neural stem cells (NSCs) with an easy, one-step protocol. Now, to visualize autophagy, simply add the BacMam LC3B-FP to the cells and incubate overnight for protein expression. Each Premo™ Autophagy Sensor Kit includes the BacMam LC3B-FP, a control BacMam LC3B (G120A)-RFP (mutation on the control BacMam LC3B prevents cleavage and subsequent lipidation during normal autophagy, thus protein localization should remain cytosolic and diffuse) and chloroquine diphosphate to artificially induce autophagosome accumulation.
