Welcome to TransfectionReagent.com
Reagents in Cultured Cells
There are many new and exciting ways to study and work with modern technology in the field of cellular biology. From the creation of biofuels to stem cell research, to cloning and curing diseases, there’s a virtually endless range of opportunity for unique and groundbreaking research to be accomplished. The primary purpose of this website is to help encourage future research by directing viewers to resources that are available for different cell types, including information related to products and services offered by Altogen Labs.
Transfection reagents enable researchers to deliver exogenous cargo into cultured cells. The payload of these delivery reagents can include miRNA, siRNA, proteins or plasmid DNA. The efficiency of a transfection reaction depends on the optimization of multiple parts, including items such as the transfection reagent, the volume of the transfection reagent used, the cell type being transfected, cell density, components in the media, etc. At the end of the experiment, the researcher must be able to have confidence that the resultant data is dependable, exhibited low transfection reagent toxicity, the transfected payload is active, the experiment is repeatable and that the reagent can transfect a range of cell types.
On each of the pages listed here you will find information on different cell lines, such as brief historical information, region of origin or initial culture leaders. Links will lead you to Altogen products for in vivo transfection.
Transfection reagents are listed alphabetically, with 1-10 on this page. Use the navigation bar at the bottom of the page to find more transfection reagents.
- Transfection reagent used in Lewis Lung carcinoma cells.
- The “LL” stands for Lewis Lung, named after Dr. Margaret R. Lewis of the Wistar Institute in 1951
- Useful in studies of types of human lung cancer.
- Transfection reagent used in Human rhabdomyosarcoma cells.
- A204 Cell Line could be used to study certain types of cancer that occur throughout the human body.
- It is believed that rhabdomyosarcoma cells originate from skeletal tissue.
- Transfection reagent used in Human lung carcinoma cells.
- A549 refers to adenocarcinomic human alveolar basal epithelial cells.
- First developed in 1972 by D. J. Giard, et al. through the removal of cancerous lung tissue from a 58-year-old caucasian male.
- Transfection reagent used in Aortic smooth muscle cells (ASMC).
- Useful in study of proinflammatory factors.
- Believed to participate directly in airway inflammation
- Transfection reagent used in Human pancreatic cells.
- Useful in the study of pancreatic cancers.
- First developed through the removal of cancerous pancreatic tissue from a 62-year-old caucasian female.
- Transfection reagent used in Primary astrocyte cells.
- Astrocytes are cells in living organisms that make up parts of the nervous system.
- Astrocytes may be useful in the study of certain studies of the spinal cord.
- Transfection reagent used in Bone marrow stromal cells (BMS).
- Bone marrow is the flexible material in the interior of most bones, in large bones, it is the source of new blood cells.
- The stroma is all tissue not directly involved making blood cells.
- Transfection reagent used in Renal carcinoma cells.
- Developed through the removal of tissue from a 49-year-old caucasian male.
- It is believed that Caki-1 may be useful for studying the human proximal tubule epithelium.
- Transfection reagent used in Human renin-expressing cells.
- Developed through the removal of tissue from a 61-year-old caucasian female.
- Human renin-expressing cells are believed to work with development of the structure of the kidney vascular system.
- Transfection reagent used in Human trachea epithelium cells (Also known as HTEpC Cell Line.)
- Epithelial cells in the airways are responsible for lubricating the lungs, maintaining humidity, and cleaning the respiratory tract.
- May be useful in the study of cases of asthma, viral infection, fibrotic lung disease, and cystic fibrosis.
