The fluorescent, genetically-encoded Ca2+ indicator (GECO) was developed by Robert Campbell’s lab at University of Alberta. R-GECO can be paired with green fluorescent cADDis, cAMP sensor, or our Upward and Downward DAG sensors to simultaneously detect both Ca2+ and cyclic AMP or Ca2+ and diacylglycerol in living cells. The BacMam delivery system enables consistent and controllable expression in a wide variety of cell types including iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes and neurons. More details on this tool can be found on the Calcium Assays page.

Materials in the Kit:

• R-GECO Ca2+ Sensor BacMam

• Sodium Butyrate, 500 mM in H2O

Z0200G M1 Muscarinic acetylcholine Receptor BacMam with nuclear green label

• Carbachol 25 mM in H2O
