IVISbrite GL261 Red F-luc Bioluminescent Tumor Cell line (Bioware Brite)

The IVISbrite GL261 Red F-luc tumor cell line (Bioware® Brite GL261-Red-FLuc) is a light-producing cell line derived from GL261 mouse glioma. The cells have been stably transduced with the red-shifted firefly luciferase gene from Luciola Italica (Red F-luc), for a brighter, red-shifted signal.

For research use only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.


IVISbrite GL261 Red F-luc Bioluminescent Tumor Cell line

  • Organism: Mouse
  • Tissue: Brain
  • Disease: Glioma
  • Optical Reporter: Red F-luc

We recommend using this line in Nude and SCID mouse models. An immune response may occur in C57BL/6 mice.

This cell line has very bright bioluminescence, emitting at least 15,000 photons/cell/sec in vitro. The exact number will vary depending on imaging and culturing conditions.

By emitting intensified, longer wavelength light that is significantly brighter than other firefly luciferases, our bioluminescent oncology cell lines allow you to visualize and monitor the growth of deep tissue tumors in vivo.

After the cells are injected into an appropriate mouse model, the optimized Red F-luc luciferase enables more sensitive in vivo optical detection with less tissue attenuation so you can detect tumor development earlier, and monitor tumor growth and metastases in both subcutaneous and orthotopic models.
