MFP dose response in vitro

COS-1 cells were transfected with a 1:1 mixture of pGS1158 (CMV-GeneSwitch v3.1)/pAP1205 (6xGAL4/TATA-SEAP) or pGS1382 (4xGAL4/tk-GeneSwitch v3.1)/pAP1205, and treated with MFP at concentrations from 10-13 to 10-7 M. Induction of SEAP activity by pGS1158 occurred when MFP was administered at concentrations between 10-12 and 10-10 M, with half maximal induction at 10-11 M. By contrast, induction of SEAP by pGS1382 occurred at MFP concentrations between 10-11 and 10-9 M, with half-maximal induction at 10-10 M. Thus, the auto-inducible GeneSwitch® system required a higher concentration of ligand for transgene induction.

MFP dose Response

MFP dose response curve was generated by transfecting COS-1 cells with a 1:1 mixture of pGS1158 (CMV-GeneSwitch v3.1)/pAP1205 (6xGAL4/TATA-SEAP) (closed squares) or pGS1382 (4xGAL4/tk-GeneSwitch v3.1)/pAP1205 (closed circles). Twenty-four hours after transfection the media was removed and replaced with media containing MFP at concentrations between 10-13 and 10-7 M. Cell culture supernatant samples were taken 24 hours later and assayed for SEAP activity. The maximal induction of SEAP with pGS1158 (9-fold) and pGS1382 (188-fold) was at 10-9 M MFP and is indicated above both curves.  Data are mean values SD of six independent transfections.
