SARS-CoV-2 assays and reagents

3CLglowLive 3CLpro (Mpro) Activity Assay

The 3CLglowLive Assay kit is well suited to experiments using the live SARS-CoV-2 virus. It is dim at baseline but fluoresces green in the presence of 3CL protease activity, an indicator of SARS-CoV-2 viral replication. The kit includes 2 BacMam viruses - one expressing the 3CLglowLive biosensor and the other a 3CLpro enzyme, which could be used to test the biosensor and optimize fluorescence detection settings.

  • Rapidly identify SARS-CoV-2 replication in living cells
  • Sensor is dark at baseline, providing minimal background fluorescence

Materials in the Kit:

• Green Fluorescent 3CLpro reporter in BacMam (3CLglowLive)

• 3CLpro Enzyme in BacMam

• Sodium Butyrate, 500 mM in H2O
