YES! I am currently using a developmental transcription factor in a
promoter/repoter construct (EGFP being the reporter), and am both
transiently transfecting (and selecting for stables) in human tumor cell
lines. The smallest tissue culture format I have used, so far, is 12-well
plates, each well about 1 cm. diameter. I am detecting using an inverted
fluorescent microscope, and quantitating using FACS analysis, no problem.
My control is the CMV-driven EGFP (very strong), but I am looking at
different constructs in order to characterize my promoter. Hope this
