BxPC-3 Cell Line:

The BxPC-3 cell line was originally established using pancreatic tissue derived from a sample removed from a 61-year-old female patient who suffered from adenocarcinoma. This cell line has been tested positive for CFTR, and fails to express the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR). BxPC-3 cells exhibit are tumorigenic and possess an epithelial cellular morphology, as well as make good transfection in vitro model.

Figure 1. Cyclophilin B silencing efficiency was determined by qRT-PCR in the BxPC-3 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 BxPC-3 cells. DNA plasmid expressing Cyclophilin B or siRNA targeting Cyclophilin B were transfected into BxPC-3 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:

Altogen Biosystems provides preoptimized transfection products for life science research applications. Transfection protocols are optimized for individual cancer cell lines. Altogen Biosystems developed two types of in vivo delivery kits for animal research: Tissue-targeted reagents (delivery to liver, pancreas, and kidney tissues), and broad range in vivo delivery reagents (PEG-Liposome, Nanoparticle-based, Lipid-based, and Polymer-based kits). Advanced formulation of reagents and optimized transfection protocols provide efficient intracellular delivery of proteins, DNA, RNA, and any other negatively charged molecules in vitro and in vivo.
