Caki-1 Cell Line:
According to the American Cancer Society, renal carcinoma is sporadic in young people, with an average patient age being approximately 65 years old. Although the death rates for kidney cancer have slightly decreased, the incidence is on the rise and represents a significant public health problem. Clear cell carcinoma accounts for 92% cases of renal cell carcinoma, which is the most common form of kidney cancer, as per the National Institutes of Health. The Caki-1 kidney clear cell carcinoma cell line exhibits epithelial cell morphology and has proven to be a dependable transfection host. This cell line was established from renal carcinoma cells of a 49-year-old Caucasian male patient with clear cell carcinoma. Caki-1 tumorigenic cells are commonly employed for studying the human proximal tubule epithelium. These cells contain many microvilli, but few filaments. Also, Caki-1 cells have many small mitochondria and a well-developed Golgi apparatus and endoplasmic reticulum (ER). Altogen Biosystems provides robust lipid-based transfection reagent kits for the Caki-1 renal carcinoma cell line that can be utilized in gene expression studies as well as in drug discovery and biomedical research.
Caki-1 was derived from a human renal clear cell carcinoma. It is commonly used as a model system for studying kidney cancer and for investigating the molecular mechanisms of tumor growth, invasion, and metastasis. Caki-1 cells are adherent and grow in vitro as monolayer cultures. They have a clear cell morphology and express high levels of vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), a key regulator of tumor angiogenesis. Caki-1 cells are often used to investigate the effects of various stimuli on tumor growth and metastasis, such as growth factors, cytokines, and chemotherapeutic agents. Caki-1 cells are also useful for studying the molecular mechanisms of kidney cancer progression and drug resistance. They have been used to investigate the role of various signaling pathways, such as the PI3K/Akt/mTOR pathway and the MAPK/ERK pathway, in tumor growth and metastasis. Caki-1 cells are also commonly used for screening compounds for their potential to inhibit tumor growth and for developing new drugs and therapies for kidney cancer.
Figure 1. SiRNAs targeting Lamin A/C mRNA or non-silencing control siRNA were transfected into Caki-1 cells following the recommended protocol. At 48 hours post-transfection the cells were analyzed by qRT-PCR for gene expression levels. 18S rRNA levels were used to normalize the Lamin A/C data. Values are normalized to untreated sample. Data are means ± SD (n=3).
Figure 2. Protein expression of Lamin A/C in Caki-1 cells. DNA plasmid expressing Lamin A/C or siRNA targeting Lamin A/C were transfected into Caki-1 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.
