B16-F10 Cell Line:

Malignant melanoma is a highly metastatic form of cancer as well as the sixth most common cancer in the United States. Preclinical studies of melanoma can help scientists to gain a better understanding of drug responses in humans and find novel therapeutics for the disease. Mice have been used as mammalian research models since the 16ᵗʰ century. They are useful in preclinical studies as their cells are good predictors of a potential drug’s performance. The B16-F10 melanoma cell lines, first discovered in 1954, are derived from naturally occurring tumors of a mouse (Mus musculus) suffered from melanoma. This cell line exhibits a morphology that is a mixture of epithelial and spindle-shaped cells. The B16-F10 cell line could be helpful for molecular and cell biology experimental research. Furthermore, the B16-F10 melanoma cell line is a suitable host for carrying out transfection during investigative and preclinical oncological research. Altogen Biosystems creates high-efficiency customized transfection reagent kits for B16-F10 mouse melanoma cells.

B16F10 is a mouse melanoma cell line that is commonly used in cancer research as a model system to study melanoma biology, metastasis, and drug discovery. The cell line was derived from a spontaneously arising tumor in a C57BL/6 mouse, and it is known for its aggressive growth and high metastatic potential. B16F10 cells are adherent and grow in vitro as monolayer cultures. They have a relatively short doubling time and can be maintained in culture for many passages. B16F10 cells are often used in a variety of experimental techniques, including cell proliferation assays, migration and invasion assays, and animal models of cancer. B16F10 cells are a valuable tool for researchers studying melanoma biology and developing new therapies for this aggressive form of skin cancer. However, it is important to note that results obtained from experiments using cell lines may not always accurately reflect the behavior of melanoma in human patients, and further studies using animal models and patient-derived samples are often necessary to validate findings.


B16-F10 Transfection Reagent

Figure 1. Cyclophilin B silencing efficiency was determined by qRT-PCR in B16-F10 cells transfected by Cyclophilin B siRNA or non-silencing siRNA control following the recommended transfection protocol. Cyclophilin mRNA expression levels were measured 48 hours post-transfection. 18S rRNA levels were used to normalize the Cyclophilin B data. Values are normalized to untreated sample. Data are presented as means ± SD (n=6).


Figure 2. Protein expression of Cyclophilin B in B16-F10  cells. DNA plasmid expressing Cyclophilin B or siRNA targeting Cyclophilin B were transfected into B16-F10 cells following Altogen Biosystems transfection protocol. At 72 hours post-transfection the cells were analyzed by Western Blot for protein expression levels (normalized by total protein, 10 µg of total protein loaded per each well). Untreated cells used as a negative control.
