Lucia luciferase reporter HEK293 cells

HEK-Lucia™ Null cells are HEK293-derived cells that stably express the Lucia luciferase secreted reporter gene.

This reporter gene is under the control of the interferon (IFN)-inducible promoter which is comprised of the IFN-stimulated genes (ISG) 54 promoter enhanced by multimeric IFN-stimulated response elements (ISRE).

HEK-Lucia™ Null cells respond to human type I IFNs.
The levels of IFN-induced Lucia in the cell culture supernatant can be easily monitored using QUANTI-Luc™ 4 Lucia/Gaussia, a Lucia and Gaussia luciferase detection reagent.

HEK-Lucia™ Null cells are resistant to G418, hygromycin, and Zeocin®. They should be maintained in growth medium supplemented with Zeocin®.

Note: HEK-Lucia™ Null cells endogenously express NOD1, TLR3, and TLR5.
