|Cell line name||HEK293 Actin-cpstFRET-Actin|
|Synonyms||HEK293 AcpA; Beta-M-HEK|
|Resource Identification Initiative||To cite this cell line use: HEK293 Actin-cpstFRET-Actin (RRID:CVCL_ZV87)|
|Comments||Characteristics: Used to report forces in actin in living cells. Has one actin molecule attached on each end of cpstFRET. The cpstFRET (circularly permuted stretch sensitive FRET) sensor consists of a pair of tandemly connected circularly permutated CFP/YFPs (cpCerulean/cpVenus). Mechanical loading twists the dipole orientation from near parallel to diagonal, decreasing FRET efficiency.|
