Assays Cellular Assays
Wnt reporter cell line for discovering Wnt pathway modulators.

  • No-transfection required
  • Can be used as a supplement to the Wnt LEADING LIGHT® Wnt Reporter Assay Starter Kit (Prod. No. ENZ-61001)
  • When used in the Wnt LEADING LIGHT® Wnt Reporter Assay Starter Kit, there are many advantages of using this line of products:
  • True end-point detection system
  • High sensitivity (Wnt3a EC50 = 45.9 ng/ml)
  • Excellent reproducibility (Z'-factor of 0.74)
  • High signal-to-noise ratio without the need for Lithium Chloride to boost the signal
  • High-throughput screening applications (including 384-well microplates)

The LEADING LIGHT® Wnt Reporter Cell Line is the basis for a cell-based luciferase activity test suitable for a multi-well plate format, such as 96- or 384-well microplates. The system contains an engineered 3T3 mouse fibroblast cell line, which expresses the firefly luciferase reporter gene under the control of Wnt-responsive promoters (TCF/LEF). The luciferase activity from the reporter gene in this cell line can be up-regulated in a dose-dependent manner upon the addition of exogenous Wnt protein/Wnt agonist or down-regulated by a further addition of a Wnt antagonist to the cell culture medium. This system can be used to elucidate the functions/activities of different Wnt-related ligands such as Wnt, DKK, etc. This system can also be used for screening small molecules and antibodies for their ability to act as Wnt inhibitors or Wnt agonists.   The assay has been used successfully in different assay formats (including HTS applications) to identify several distinct categories of small molecule compounds that modulate the Wnt signaling pathway.

Note: The complete LEADING LIGHT® Wnt Reporter Assay Starter Kit (Prod. No. ENZ-61001) is available.
