SuperTopFlash (STF) HEK293 Cell Line

SuperTop (STF) HEK293 is a luciferase reporter cell line that responds to canonical Wnt signaling by expressing firefly luciferase.


  • Cells have been shown to respond to activators of the canonical Wnt pathway in mice, inducing luciferase activity by 1000x

This is a stable cell line that was made from HEK/293 cells and is G418 resistant. The cell line, which contains a luciferase reporter under control of 7 LEF/TCF binding sites, utilizes the Super TOPFlash system. It responds to activation of the canonical Wnt signaling pathway by increasing expression of firefly luciferase.
