Tool Details


  • Name: HeLa EGFP-Histone H2B Cell Line
  • Alternate name: Histone H2B
  • Research fields: Cell biology;Genetics
  • Tool sub type: Continuous
  • Parental cell: HeLa
  • Organism: Human
  • Tissue: Cervix
  • Model: Reporter
  • Conditional: Yes
  • Description: The human histone H2B gene was fused to the gene encoding the enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP) and transfected into human HeLa cells to generate a stable line constitutively expressing H2B-GFP. The H2B-GFP fusion protein was incorporated into nucleosomes without affecting cell cycle progression. The cell line allows high-resolution imaging of both mitotic chromosomes and interphase chromatin.
  • Biosafety level: 1
  • Recommended controls: HeLa parental line


  • Format: Frozen
  • Growth medium: DMEM, 10% FBS, 5% CO2, 37?‚°C. Antibiotic resistance for selection of GFP positive cells: 4 ?g/ml Blasticidine, expression of GFP is quite stable but selecting at least every two passages is recommended.
  • Unit size: 1x10^6 cells / vial
  • Shipping conditions: Dry ice
