Molecular Probes™ CellLight™ Nucleus-CFP, BacMam 2.0
CellLight™ Nucleus-CFP, BacMam 2.0
Manufacturer: Molecular Probes™ C10616
DescriptionCellLight™ Nucleus-CFP, BacMam 2.0, provides an easy way to label nuclei with cyan fluorescent protein (CFP) in live cells. Simply add the reagent to your cells, incubate overnight, and the cells are ready to image in the morning.

This ready-to-use construct is transfected into cells using BacMam 2.0 technology, where it expresses CFP fused to the SV40 nuclear localization sequence. You can observe nucleus-CFP behavior in live cells without the cellular toxicity associated with intercalators and label with multiple tracking or tracing dyes to image dynamic cellular processes.
Cells expressing CellLight™ constructs can also be fixed with formaldehyde for multiplexed imaging using immunocytochemical techniques.
CellLight™ Technology is:
CellLight™ Nucleus-CFP, BacMam 2.0, is a fusion construct of SV40 nuclear localization sequence and CFP, providing accurate and specific targeting to cellular nucleus-CFP. This fusion construct is packaged in the insect virus baculovirus, which does not replicate in human cells and is designated as safe to use with biosafety level (BSL) 1 in most laboratories. BacMam technology ensures that most mammalian cell types are transduced/transfected with high efficiency and minimal toxicity. This transient transfection can be detected after overnight incubation for up to five days—enough time to carry out most dynamic cellular analyses. Like any transfection/transduction technique, the BacMam method does not transfect/transduce all of the cells with equal efficiency, making it poorly suited to cellular population studies or automated imaging/counting. CellLight™ reagents are ideal for experiments where cellular or subcellular co-locatization is required, or for cellular function studies that need special resolution.
