Transposable elements (TEs) constitute a large proportion of the genome in multiple organisms. Therefore, anti-transposable element machineries are essential to maintain genomic integrity. PIWI-interacting RNAs (piRNAs) are a major force to repress TEs in Drosophila ovaries. Ovarian somatic cells (OSC), in which nuclear piRNA regulation is functional, have been used for research on piRNA pathway as a cell culture system to elucidate the molecular mechanisms underlying the piRNA pathway. Analysis of piRNA pathway using a reporter system to monitor the gene regulation or overexpression of specific genes would be a powerful approach. Here, we present the technical protocol to establish stable cell lines using the piggyBac system, adopted for OSCs. This easy, consistent, and timesaving protocol may accelerate research on the piRNA pathway.
