    Vigene offers GCaMP3, GCaMP5 and GCaMP6 products come ready-to-use, with a choice of promoter with or without Cre inducible (FLEx-ON) expression. AAV8 and AAV9 serotypes of AAV-GCaMP6 are ready to ship. Should you require a different serotype, please contact us.

    GCaMP: Next-generation genetically encoded calcium indicators

    ● GCaMP is a genetically encoded calcium indicator (GECI) generated from a fusion of the green fluorescent protein (GFP), calmodulin, and M13, a peptide sequence from myosin light chain kinase. Upon binding of GECI to Ca2+ there is an induction of a change in fluorescence signal. This signal change allows measurement of action potentials, and other receptor activation events, that trigger Ca2+ fluxes.

    ● Applications include neuroscience research using in vitro or in vivo models; long-term functional imaging of neuronal activity including correlation with animal behavior; screening for G-protein coupled receptor (GPCR) or ion channel agonists and antagonists.

    Key advantage of GCaMP

    ● Genetically specified for Ready for use studies in vivo.
    ● GCaMP6 are the 6th generation of GCaMP, offering improved engineering for increased signal-to-noise ratio and much faster kinetics, when compared to previous versions, specifically, GCaMP3 and GCaMP5G.
    ● GCaMP3 is the 3rd generation of GCaMP and reliably detects three or more action potentials in short bursts in several systems in vivo.
