CHO Cell Line:

The CHO stands for, and was established (1957) using Chinese Hamster (Cricetulus griseus) Ovary tissue. This cell line is frequently used in the production of therapeutic proteins, and is one of the most widely used mammalian cell lines used in transfection, as well as large scale recombinant protein production. CHO cells exhibit an epithelial like cell morphology. CHO cell line is extensively used in biomedical research and biotechnology R&D applications.

Data:

CHO cell transfection reagent

Figure 1. GAPD mRNA levels were quantified using real-time RT-PCR in the CHO cells transfected with siRNAs targeting GAPD or non-silencing siRNA. Forty-eight hours post-transfection, the cells were harvested and analyzed by real-time RT-PCR for GAPDH mRNA expression levels. Data were normalized against the 18S rRNA signal. Control samples were either mock-transfected or untreated. Values are normalized to untreated sample. Data are means ± SD (n=3).

Figure 2. Protein expression of GAPDH in CHO cells. DNA plasmid expressing GAPDH or siRNA targeting GAPDH were transfected into CHO 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.
