|The main role of the cAMP response element, or CRE, is mediating the effects of Protein Kinase A (PKA) by way of transcription. It is the main binding site of cAMP response element binding protein (CREB) and is responsible for its activation. CRE is the target of many extracellular and intracellular signaling pathways, including cAMP, calcium, GPCR (G-protein coupled receptors) and neurotrophins. The cAMP/PKA signaling pathway is critical to numerous life processes in living organisms. In the cAMP/PKA signaling pathway, CREB is activated via phosphorylation of PKA and binds to CRE with a general motif of 5’-TGACGTCA-3’. Since CRE is a modulator of the cAMP/PKA signaling pathway, it allows the effects of various inhibitors to be studied.|
|The cAMP/PKA Signaling Pathway CRE/CREB Reporter (Luc) – HEK293 Cell Line is designed for monitoring the activity of the cAMP/ PKA signaling pathway. The cAMP/PKA Signaling Pathway CRE/CREB Reporter (Luc) – HEK293 Cell Line contains a firefly luciferase gene under the control of multimerized cAMP response element (CRE) stably integrated into HEK293 cells. Elevation of the intracellular cAMP level activates cAMP response element binding protein (CREB) to bind CRE and induces the expression of luciferase.|
