G418 maintains stable expression of recombinant hRyR2 in HEK293 cells..
By Niroj Shrestha on 01/26/2019
Assay Type: In Vitro
Species: Human
Cell Line/Tissue: HEK293

G418 was reconstituted in milli-Q water to get a stock solution of 50 mg/ml. The stock was diluted to 250 mcg/ml in DMEM containing 10% FBS, 4 mM glutamine, 10 mM HEPES and puromycin (5 mcg/ml) and used to culture HEK293 cell line, stably expressing hRyR2-IRES-GFP.

Stock solutions should be stored in aliquots at -20°C.
