Tool Details


  • Name: MEF PKCe KO KI Cell Line
  • Research fields: Cancer;Cell biology;Cell signaling and signal transduction
  • Organism: Mouse
  • Tissue: Embryo
  • Disease: Cancer
  • Growth properties: Normal phenotype
  • Model: Transgenic
  • Description: MEF PKCe KO KI Cell Line is a clonal MEF line derived from PKCepsilon knock-out embryos subsequently transfected to re-express PKCe through stable transfection with pcDNA3 CMV/IE hygo+ PKCe. Matched isogenic cell line which is null for PKCe is also available. Useful for studying the role of PKCe in various biological processes
  • Production details: MEFs were derived from PKCe knockout embryos. Polyclonal PKCeKO cells were transfected with pcDNA3 CMV/IE hygro+ PKCe vector using calcium phosphate. Clonal stable cell lines were selected using limiting dilution. The vector was contructed by replacing the promoter region in pCMV hygro+ with a 2.1kb CMV/IE promoter derived from p63d. Mouse cDNA encoding full-length PKCe (3.3kb fragment) was ligated to the modified pcDNA3 CMV/IE hygro+ vector.
