ADCC NFAT-CD16 Effector Cell Line, Human Jurkat T Lymphocytes (CAT#: AD-P003-C) Datasheet

NFAT-CD16 cells are engineered from the human T lymphocyte Jurkat cell line. Jurkat cells naturally express a functional NFAT (nuclear factor that activates T cells) transcription factor, which is involved in the early signaling event of antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC). ADCC is an immune mechanism through which effector cells with Fc receptors can recognize and kill antibody (Ab)-coated target cells that express antigen on their surface. ADCC is triggered by cross-linking between Abs bound by immune effector cell surface antigens and the Fc receptor CD16A. These interactions induce an increase in intracellular calcium concentration, calreticulin/calmodulin-mediated dephosphorylation of NFAT, nuclear translocation and binding to the promoter region of ADCC-related genes. Eventually, the effector cells release cytotoxic particles that kill the target cells. Jurkat NFAT-CD16 cells have been designed as effector reporter cells for our ADCC analysis. These cells stably express the Lucia luciferase reporter gene under the control of ISG54 minimal promoter fused with six NFAT response elements. ADCC induction is measured by the bioluminescence signal generated by luciferase produced by adding the appropriate detection reagent Luc.

Sterility Testing
Creative Biolabs provides sterility testing in accordance with USP and EP regulations. All of our sterility testing is performed in an isolator or clean room environments. The cell line has been screened using the membrane filtration testing methods to confirm the absence of aerobic, anaerobic and fungi microorganisms.
Identity Testing
Identity testing is required for newly established cell lines. Isoenzyme analysis is used to confirm the identity of the species of a cell line. Alternative methods for identity testing include DNA fingerprinting, STR analysis and karyology.
Virological Safety Testing
A broad range of viruses is susceptible to affecting human cell lines. We can provide in vivo/vitro virus saftey assays by utilizing various animal systems. These viruses include: adventitious viruses, bovine viruses, human and simian viruses, porcine viruses, retrovirus and rodent viruses.
Genetic Stability Testing
We perform cell genetic stability studies under ICH guidelines. We can provide guidance on the appropriate testing program upon your requirements.
Mycoplasma Testing
Guaranteed mycoplasma-free
Dry ice
-80°C for short-term storage, liquid nitrogen for long-term storage
Avoid multiple freeze/thaw cycles
Research Use Only
Our recombinant cell are for research use only, not for diagnostic or therapeutic use.
Quality Control
The expression of human CD16A has been verified by flow cytometry.
The induction of antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) has been verified using our anti-hCD20-hIgG1 antibody and Raji-Null target cell line.
