Cell Painting Tools (Paints)

Green and Red fluorescent proteins targeted to subcellular domains

Montana Molecular’s cell painting tools – Paints – are a suite of fluorescent proteins targeted to subcellular domains. These tools utilize fluorescent proteins to visualize cellular structures, allowing researchers to study cell morphology, protein interactions, and cellular processes. In the context of drug discovery and disease research, use Paints to investigate drug effects, monitor of metabolic activities, and identify of disease-associated phenotypes.

  • Packaged in a BacMam viral vector for consistent, titratable expression in a wide range of cell types – including many primary and iPSC cultures
  • Easily co-transduce red and green fluorescent Paints, biosensors, and other BacMam-packaged constructs
  • No fixation required

Untargeted Fluorescent Proteins

Untargeted red and green fluorescent proteins that provide cytosolic expression. These tools are well suited to optimizing transduction conditions and instrumentation settings.
