Mouse esc engineered with a unique reporter gene that allows for cell enrichment during a multi-step culture yields a homogenous population of phenotypic and functional connective tissue and mucosal mast cells.
Therefore, it is hoped that further studies such as cloning of various 5'-UTR sequences in upstream, a reporter gene and evaluating the translation rate of that reporter gene will help to better understand the diversity in 5'UTR and its effect on the translation efficiency and function of each variant.
The researchers built a reporter gene that glowed green when the stem cells first expressed Nkx2-1.
Dose response of pgCAR activator phenytoin in HepG2: A dose response curve was generated to determine the proper concentration range that induces pgCAR reporter gene activation by Phenytoin using the dual-luciferase reporter assay.
Most of these are primarily binding-based assays, including solid-phase ELISA methods (8, 45, 49) and liquid-phase, HPLC-based homogenous mobility shift assay (HMSA) (50); in addition, a functional cell-based reporter gene assay (RGA) has been developed (51 ) and is currently available for clinical use (52).

In addition, the cells utilise the luciferase reporter gene, which provides a highly sensitive measure of changes in ERR?
Reporter gene labelling: Reporter gene labelling is achieved through the fusion of an MRI reporter gene to a target gene.
In our ongoing efforts to search for new STAT3 signaling pathway inhibitors from natural resources, we conducted a screening program targeting the inhibition of STAT3 signaling pathway and examined an extract library of Chinese herbs using a STAT3 luciferase reporter gene in HepG2 cells.
Transfection studies using the estrogen response element spliced to a luciferase reporter gene revealed that constitutive RACK-1 expression was able to powerfully stimulate ER-a activity under estrogen-free conditions.
