Ready-to-Assay™ AT1 Angiotensin Receptor Frozen Cells

The Ready-to-Assay™ AT1 Angiotensin Receptor Frozen Cells measure AGTR1 (GPCR) activation via an increase in intracellular calcium. Ready-to-Assay kits contain two vials of thaw-and-use cells.

Catalog #: HTS064RTA Size: 2 vials


Biological Information
Background Information:
The Ready-to-Assay™ AT1 Angiotensin Receptor Frozen Cells are a simple, thaw-and-assay cell format for use in studying drug candidates (small molecules or biologics) targeting GPCRs. This assay assesses ligand (e.g. Angiotensin-II) based activation of AGTR1 GPCR activity via detection of increasing levels of intracellular calcium. The included cells overexpress AGTR1 alongside endogenous high levels of a promiscuous G-protein, coupling the receptor to the calcium signaling pathway. Upon activation of AGTR1 , the resulting calcium activity can be fluorescently assayed. Ready-to-assay kits consist of two vials of the stably modified clonal cell line in a convenient thaw-and-use format.
