These innovations also served as the basis for the company's transfection formulations and nucleic acid labeling and conjugation chemistries.
The transfections were done at 37 r, following a temperature shift to 31 r, 4 hr posttrans-fection at the same time with diluting the cells with fresh medium to a final cell density of 4x106 cells/ml.
Forty-eight hours following transfection, the medium was aspirated, and the cells were washed 2X with 4 mL ice cold PBS.
In the case of the female gamete in vitro transfections using liposomes or retroviruses have been applied successfully.
Optimal transfections were achieved with 1 big DNA complexed with 18 nmol 22 kDa PEI 4 days after brain injections.
Transient transfection studies with a [beta]-globin promoter and an heterologous reporter gene have shown that promoter mutations can decrease transcription (2) and are then associated with the [beta]-thalassemia phenotype, as illustrated by the -30T [right arrow] A mutation (3).
Production of Proteins with Human Post-Translational Modifications Enabled by MaxCyte Large Scale Transient Transfection of Cevec CAP-T[TM] Cells
HEK 293T cells are commonly used for lentivirus production due to high transfection efficiencies and protein expression levels; however, the lentivirus platform is often limited by insufficient viral titers requiring concentration before use.
Analysis of virus titer generated by pLNCLZRz transfections for all incubation periods indicated an increase over time.
Such stable reporter cell lines offer the advantage of eliminating the variability that arises with repeated transient transfections.
Enginasion's product development partner, TransCytos, is developing a novel transfection instrument, Cytofector R1[TM], based on a breakthrough, patent-pending hydrodynamic transfection technology.
