B16-Blue IFN-gamma

Murine IFN-gamma sensor cells

B16-Blue™ IFN-γ cells allow the detection of bioactive murine IFN-γ (mIFN-γ) by monitoring the activation of the JAK/STAT/ISRE pathway.

They derive from the murine B16 melanoma cell line of C57BL/6 origin after stable transfection with a SEAP reporter gene under the control of the IFN-inducible ISG54 promoter enhanced by a multimeric ISRE.
B16-Blue™ IFN-γ cells do not respond to IFN-α/β, due to the inactivation of the type I IFN receptor. B16-Blue™ IFN-γ cells respond specifically to mIFN-γ and do not respond to human IFN-γ.

Stimulation of B16-Blue™ IFN-γ cells with mIFN-γ triggers the production of SEAP. Levels of SEAP in the supernatant can be easily determined with QUANTI-Blue™, a medium that turns purple/blue in the presence of SEAP and by reading the OD at 655 nm.

Specifications

Detection range for murine IFN-γ: 0.1 ng - 1 µg/ml for mIFN-γ.

Antibiotic resistance: Zeocin™

Quality control:

  • B16-Blue™ IFN-γ cells were stimulated with murine IFN-α, IFN-β and IFN-γ. The cells produce SEAP only in response to murine IFN-γ.
  • These cells are guaranteed mycoplasma-free.

Growth medium:
RPMI, 10% (v/v) fetal bovine serum, 50 U/ml penicillin, 50 µg/ml streptomycin, 100 µg/ml Normocin™, 2 mM L-glutamine
OR
DMEM, 10% (v/v) fetal bovine serum, 50 U/ml penicillin, 50 µg/ml streptomycin, 100 µg/ml Normocin™, 2 mM L-glutamine
