  • Description: HR1 cells are HEK 293 cells stably expressing conditional kinase ∆Raf-1:ER* from the pCMV Neo Myc plasmid. ∆Raf-1:ER* (also known as ∆CRAF:ER*) consists of the isolated kinase domain of c-Raf1 fused in-frame to a modified form of the hormone binding domain of the estrogen receptor (hbER*) that can be de-repressed by 4-hydroxytamoxifen (4-HT) but not β-estradiol. In this case the * refers to a point mutation that ablates estradiol binding but allows 4-HT binding. Activation of ∆Raf-1:ER* leads to the selective activation of the ERK1/2 pathway. This cell line can be used to study the cellular role and factors impacting on the ERK1/2 signalling pathway such as gene expression, cell proliferation, cell cycle arrest and cell death. The cells are G418 resistant. Conditional kinase activation of ∆Raf-1:ER* can be induced with 100nM 4-HT.
  • Production details: HEK 293 cells were transfected with the pCMV Neo Myc plasmid expressing â?‚ˆ?‚†Raf-1:ER*. Stable transfectants were selected by neomycin resistance using G418 (Geneticin) and ring cloning.
