3x3 cm plates of both TET2-pCDNA3 and pCDNA3 stable transfect cells were grown with GF H4034, with control plates of the stably transfected lines grown without GF H4034.
Electroporation may also penetrate to transfect cultured organs or whole tissues of live organisms.
Recombinant VEGF-shRNA plasmids were transiently transfected into HTF cells, and shRNAs were screened using a pSLIK miRNA-based vector that lacked VEGF interference sequences as a negative control.
Whole-cell patch-clamp recordings of miniature excitatory postsynaptic currents (mEPSC) were obtained from transfected cultured hippocampal neurons treated with A[beta] oligomers on DIV 12-13 [41, 43].

This is accompanied by significant increase of Ngn3, insulin, Glut2, Kir6.2, SUR1, and VDCC, as compared to cells transfected with control siRNA (Figure 3(b)).
Jurkat-TAg cells were transfected with an NFAT-luciferase plasmid plus a pgalactosidase ([micro]-gal) reporter plasmid as described [20, 21].
The rate of gap-filling in cells transfected with PCNA and XRCC1 was slower than with PCNA alone (Figure 8(c), compare the curve of closed circles and the curve of open circles).
H9c2 cells were transfected with PPRE3-luciferase reporter and Ptk-RL and PPAR[gamma] plasmids as indicated.
