GFP+ SH-SY5Y Cell Line

SH-SY5Y is a human neuroblastoma cell line widely used in systematic toxicological assays1, high-throughput screenings, and in the study of CNS disorders such as Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s diseases2. SH-SY5Y cells can be differentiated into mature neurons at a high efficiency and utilized for screening and assays3. To further increase their utility, Hera has modified the neuroblastoma cell line using the (non-viral) piggyBac transposon technology to stably express green fluorescent protein (GFP).  The stable GFP+ SH-SY5Y cell line retains the same morphology and the ability to differentiate as the unmodified SH-SY5Y cell line.
