PC3-ML-Luciferase Prostate Cancer Cell Line

PC3-ML Luciferase cell line are luciferase expressing prostate cancer cells derived from a metastatic bone.


  • Luciferase stable PC3 cells can be a very useful cell line for non-invasive visualization in in vitro experiments

Luciferase is commonly used as a reporter to assess the transcriptional activity of a genetic construct with luciferase gene under the promoter of interest. Luciferase stable PC3 Cells is a luciferase expressing cell line derived from PC3 cells. Prostate cancer is the development of cancer in the prostate, a gland in the male reproductive system. The androgen receptor (AR) helps prostate cancer cells to survive and is a target for many anti cancer research studies by looking at inhibition.
