Capan-1 Cell Line:
Pancreatic cancer remains one of the deadliest tumors with a poor prognosis and life expectancy. According to the National Pancreatic Cancer Foundation (NPCF), only 5% of pancreatic cancer patients will be still alive five years after the diagnosis. The Capan-1 cell line was derived from a 40-year-old male patient of pancreatic cancer. These tumorigenic cells exhibit an epithelial cell morphology and make suitable transfection hosts. Capan-1 cells have been known to produce gastric-type mucin, and express CFTR (cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator). The Capan-1 pancreatic cell line has proven to be a reliable host for transfection studies that aid investigative research for new drugs. In addition to being a suitable host for pancreatic cancer studies, this cell line is helpful in molecular biology as well as in drug discovery research. Altogen Biosystems offers advanced cationic lipid formulation high-efficiency transfection reagent kits for the Capan-1 pancreatic cancer cell line.
Figure 1. Cyclophilin B silencing efficiency was determined by qRT-PCR in the Capan-1 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 Capan-1 cells. DNA plasmid expressing Cyclophilin B or siRNA targeting Cyclophilin B were transfected into Capan-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.
Altogen Biosystems manufacturers preoptimized transfection kits for cancer research. Reagents and 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 into liver, pancreas, and kidney tissues), and in vivo biodistribution reagents (PEG-Liposome, Nanoparticle, Lipid, and Polymer-based kits). Optimized transfection protocols provide efficient intracellular delivery of proteins, DNA, and RNA molecules in vitro and in vivo.
