Product Category: Pre-made recombinant lentivirus; LV-CMV-GCaMP6f-T2A-mScarlet; CMV-GCaMP6f Lentivirus

GCaMP is a genetically encoded calcium indicator (GECI) and created from a fusion of green fluorescent protein (GFP), calmodulin (CaM), and M13, a peptide sequence from myosin light chain kinase.  When GECI binds Ca2+, the conformational change of GCaMP induces proximity of the GFP parts, eliciting strong GFP fluorescence signal, which allows measuring action potentials and other receptor activation events that trigger Ca2+ influx. The advantage of GECI's are that they can be genetically specified for studies in living organisms.

GCaMP6 is a novel ultra-sensitive format of GCaMP that outperformed other sensors in terms of accuracy and sensitivity in measuring cytosol Ca2+ level.  Mutations in calmodulin part of GCaMP6 created several variants which showed different calcium fluorescence decay rate (fast - GCamP6f, slow - GCaMP6f and medium - GCaMP6m). 

LV-CMV-GCaMP6f-T2A-mScarlet is a pre-made lentivirus which expresses GCaMP6f under the CMV promoter with co-expression of Scarlet as reporter via T2A linker. Ready to use format.
