Use of the PromoterTest™ Assay Kit (cat.# PROMTEST) helps ensure the selection of a promoter suited to express a cDNA of interest in any mammalian cell system. RNA polymerase II promoters show a wide range of variation across different cells and different culture conditions. For experiments where strong expression of a gene is necessary, the PromoterTest Assay allows you to easily identify which of eight different RNA polymerase II promoter configurations in the Kit works most effectively in your cell line.

The PromoterTest Kit includes eight lentivectors prepackaged as ready-to-transduce lentiviral particles. Each lentivector carries the same green fluorescent protein (GFP) under the control of a different promoter. To use the kit, you simply need to transduce the lentivectors into your cell line, and compare the GFP intensities from each different construct.

The Kit provides enough reagents to test ~10 cell lines.
