  • Description: The HEK293-A mRFP-ATG9 cell line is a stable cell line expressing mRFP-tagged ATG9 (human) in background of HEK293A cell line. It can be used to monitor delivery of membrane from the endosomes and Golgi to the forming autophagosome using live-cell microscopy and biochemical approaches.
  • Production details: pEGFP-mRFP-Atg9 plasmid was transfected into HEK293A cells. The plasmid was generated by excision of the EGFP coding sequence from pEGFP-C1 and insertion of the mRFP-ATG9 cassette. The cells were selected with 800ug/ml geneticin (G418) followed by single cell clonal dilution. Clones were screened by confocal microscopy for low-level expression in which mRFP- Atg9 distribution resembled that of endogenous mAtg9 and by western blot. Clone 1F10 was selected as the best based on these parameters.
