Development 10-pathway Reporter Arrays

Luciferase (Tubes) Luciferase (Plates) Lentiviral Luciferase
Development 10-pathway Reporter Luciferase Kit: CCA-003L (Tube Format)

The Development Reporter Array is the first commercial reporter array that allows for a comprehensive measurement of ten development-related signaling pathways. By screening 10 pathway activities simultaneously, scientists can identify relevant pathways and exclude irrelevant pathways from further analysis. Therefore, Cignal Finder Arrays pinpoint the pathways that are regulated by a specific gene or drug. The tube format allows scientists to customize the concentrations of reporter used and the experimental design.

Cignal Finder Array - Tube Format
The tube format of the Cignal Finder Arrays are delivered in 12-tube strips, along with important negative and positive controls. The assays are used right out of the box for the transfection or reverse transfection of the reporter assays into your cell lines of interest.

Simple Procedure:

  • Transfect Cignal Reporter Assays and test nucleic acids into cells
  • Treat with protein, peptide, or small molecule of interest
  • Perform reporter quantitation using luciferase activity assays

All reporter assays are based on dual-luciferase technology. Each reporter consists of a mixture of a pathway-focused transcription factor-responsive firefly luciferase construct and a constitutively expressing Renilla luciferase construct.

Dual-luciferase results are calculated for each transfectant. The change in the activity of each signaling pathway is determined by comparing the normalized luciferase activities of the reporter in treated versus untreated transfectants.

The identically treated negative control serves as a specificity control. The positive control serves as a control for transfection efficiency, by monitoring GFP expression, as well as a positive control for both the firefly and Renilla luciferase assays.
