Creative Biolabs has been setting the standard in quality virology research reagents for over 10 years.
Human nAChR-overexpressed CHO pseudohost is produced by transfection CHO cells with a lentiviral vector encoding human nAChR proteins. This stable cell line express human nAChR proteins on the cell surface, and it can be used for drug/vaccine/viral inhibitor screening, neutralizing antibody screening and serum neutralization assay.
(Note: Please select the requirements to fit you project. If you have any other requirements, please specify. If no specific requirements, you don't need to select any button.)
|Application Notes||The pseudohost can be usd for the following applications:|
1. Antibody neutralization assay, Serum neutralization assay.
3. Drug screening including vaccine development, viral entry inhibitor development.
4. Virus entry mechanism discovery.
|Mycoplasma Testing||The cell line has been screened using the luciferase based mycoplasma detection kit to confirm the absence of mycoplasma species.|
|Quality Control||Cultures are screened for the presence of bacteries, yeast, fungi and mycoplasma (DNA amplification). Growth media are also certified based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines.|
|Storage||Cells must be thawed immediately upon receipt and grown according to handling procedures to ensure cell viability and proper assay performance. DO NOT FREEZE the cells upon receipt as it may result in irreversible damage to the cell line. After recovery, the cells can be stored at -80°C or liquid nitrogen (-150°C to -190°C) for long term.|
|Note||We cannot guarantee cell viability if the cells are not thawed immediately upon receipt. Avoid multiple freeze/thaw cycles.|
|Introduction||This gene encodes a nicotinic acetylcholine receptor, which belongs to a superfamily of ligand-gated ion channels that play a role in fast signal transmission at synapses. These pentameric receptors can bind acetylcholine, which causes an extensive change in conformation that leads to the opening of an ion-conducting channel across the plasma membrane. This protein is an integral membrane receptor subunit that can interact with either nAChR beta-2 or nAChR beta-4 to form a functional receptor. There is convincing in vitro evidence that the muscular form of the nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) binds rabies virus and/or facilitate rabies virus entry into cells|
