Transfection Reagent for Chromaffin Cells

  • A biodegradable polymer based transfection agent – once inside the cell, the polymer degrades into smaller less toxic components reducing cell toxicity, facilitating release of the transgene, and improving transfection efficiency
  • High transfection efficiency of both siRNA and plasmid DNA without compromising cell viability
  • Achieve robust siRNA uptake for dependable gene silencing
  • Effective transfection under conditions of up to 40% serum
  • Gentle enough to be used for single cell analysis
  • Download PowerPoint presentation for Chromaffin cells transfection kit: [PPT]
  • Developed and manufactured by Altogen Biosystems

Transfection Efficiency:

Reagent exhibits at least 75% transfection efficiency of siRNA delivery. Transfection efficiency was determined by qRT-PCR.

Chromaffin Cell Line:

The Chromaffin cell lines were established using human Chromaffin cell cultures. These cells have also been known as Medullary Chromaffin cells. Neuroendocrine cells are found in the sympathetic nervous system, and are responsible for a variety of body processes. “Chromaffin” is a combination of the words “chromium” and “affinity”, they were given this name because they easily pick up chromatin stain. These cells are useful in biomedical research and many molecular and cell biology experiments.


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