Reporter Kits

Reporter Kits

Gene reporter systems are extensively used for the study of eukaryotic gene expression and cellular events coupled to gene expression. Typically the reporter gene of choice is cloned with a promoter sequence of interest into an expression vector that is then tranferred into cells. Cells are subsequently assayed for the presence of the reporter by directly measuring the reporter protein itself or the enzymatic activity of the reporter protein, either in vitro or in vivo. Mandel and Genlantis have come together to offer a variety of ideal reporter systems which have little to no background activity, as well as quantitative measurements that are made using assays that are easy, sensitive and reliable.
