Cignal 45-Pathway Reporter Array

Cignal 45-Pathway Reporter Array: CCA-901L

The Signal Transduction Reporter Array allows for the comprehensive analysis of 45 signaling pathways. By screening pathway activities simultaneously, scientists quickly identify relevant pathways for further analysis. Therefore, Cignal Finder Arrays pinpoint the pathways that are perturbed by a specific gene or drug. The plate format facilitates shorter transfection protocols and high-throughput analysis.

Cignal Finder Array - Plate Format
The plate format of the Cignal Finder Arrays are delivered in a 96-well cell culture plate. Each reporter and control assay is dried down in two wells of the plate.

Simple Procedure:

  • Transfect Cignal Reporter Assays and test nucleic acids into cells
  • Treat with protein, peptide, or small molecule of interest
  • Measure pathway activity using luciferase enzyme 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.

Data Analysis:

SABiosciences has developed a complimentary excel spreadsheet to assist in the analysis of the 45 pathways.

Down load the Data Analysis Software

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.
