BMS2 Cell Line:
The BMS2 cell line was established using bone marrow stromal cells (BMS) from mammalian tissue. 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. These properties make these type of cells useful in many types of biomolecular and cell biology research.
Figure 1. Cyclophilin B silencing efficiency was determined by qRT-PCR in the BMS2 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=3).
Figure 2. Protein expression of Cyclophilin B in BMS2 cells. DNA plasmid expressing Cyclophilin B or siRNA targeting Cyclophilin B were transfected into BMS2 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.
Altogen Biosystems provides pre-optimized transfection kits and electroporation products for life sciences and cancer research. Transfection protocols are optimized for individual cancer cell lines. Altogen Biosystems developed two types of in vivo delivery kits (animal transfection): 1) Tissue-targeted reagents (delivery of proteins, DNA, and RNA into liver, pancreas, or kidney tissues), and 2) Broad range in vivo biodistribution reagents (PEG-Liposome based reagent, Nanoparticle-based in vivo reagent, Lipid-based transfection kit, and Polymer-based kit). Advanced formulation of reagents and optimized transfection protocols provide efficient intracellular delivery of proteins, DNA, mRNA, shRNA, siRNA, and other negatively charged biomolecules in vitro and in vivo.
