Lentiviral Particles for Fluorescent Labeling of Specific Subcellular Structures

Clontech has partnered with Vectalys to provide high-titer, high-purity, ready-to-use lentiviral particles for fluorescent labeling of specific subcellular structures. These particles deliver sequences that express fluorescent protein tags (AcGFP1 or mCherry) targeted to specific subcellular locations. Transduction allows direct visualization of specific organelles or structures, creating reporter cells that are useful for investigating protein localization, protein dynamics, and protein trafficking. Particles are available to visualize the nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, mitochondria, endosomes, golgi, cytoskeleton, and plasma membrane. These lentiviral particles can be used to transduce a variety of cell types including those that may be resistant to other gene delivery methods, such as primary cells and stem cells. The fluorescent markers offered (AcGFP1 and mCherry) allow for multicolor labeling and direct detection by fluorescence microscopy.

  • What does 109 TU/ml mean?
    • In each microliter there will be at least 1 x 106 functional lentivirus particles.
    • Each 60 µl kit is sufficient for 30 transductions (using an MOI of 10) in a 6-well plate containing 2 x 105 cells/well

      NOTE: Lentiviral particles are also available in single 20 µl aliquots sufficient for 10 transductions.

    • Lentiviral Particles
  • Ready-to-use particles can be added directly to cells
    • Highly concentrated lentiviral particles; all lots are >109 transducing units (TU) per ml (functional titer, not a just a particle count)
    • High purity lentiviral particles—transduce cells without cytotoxicity
  • Expression can be monitored in living cells by fluorescence microscopy
    • AcGFP1 is a true monomeric green fluorescent protein with spectral properties similar to those of EGFP
    • mCherry is the most widely adopted monomeric red fluorescent protein
    • Learn more about the properties of these fluorescent proteins
  • Particles available for labeling the nucleus, endoplasmic reticulum, actin, mitochondria, tubulin, endosome, golgi, and plasma membrane
  • These vectors have a puromycin resistance cassette and the stable clones integrating these constructs can be selected using Puromycin.


  • Cell organelle/structure labeling—monitor protein localization, protein trafficking, organelle dynamics, etc.
  • Simple method for generating stable reporter cell lines
