Cellosaurus MDCK Actin-cpstFRET-Actin (CVCL_ZV91)

[Text version]

Cell line name MDCK Actin-cpstFRET-Actin
Synonyms MDCK AcpA
Accession CVCL_ZV91
Resource Identification Initiative To cite this cell line use: MDCK Actin-cpstFRET-Actin (RRID:CVCL_ZV91)
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.
Transfected with: HGNC; 132; ACTB.
Derived from sampling site: Kidney.
Species of origin Canis lupus familiaris (Dog) (Canis familiaris) (NCBI Taxonomy: 9615)
Breed/subspecies: Cocker Spaniel.
Hierarchy Parent: CVCL_0422 (MDCK)
Sex of cell Female
Age at sampling Adult
Category Spontaneously immortalized cell line
