Overview

Overview

Easily track exosomes with a CD63-GFP fusion Monitor exosome dynamics with the pCT-CD63-GFP (pCMV) Exosome Cyto-Tracer (also available as a CD63-RFP fusion, pCT-CD63-RFP). Provided as either lentivector or pre-packaged virus, this Cyto-Tracer fuses GFP to the tetraspanin CD63, which then gets packaged into exosomes produced by the transfected cells. Great for creating stable cell lines that produce GFP-labeled exosomes as well as labeling exosomes from primary cells, tumor cells, stem cells, and more.
  • Stable lentivector-based system
  • Ideal for co-localization studies
