CLBPEC Cell Line:
Neuroblastoma is a rare form of cancerous tumor that develops from neuroblasts, found in the adrenal glands and almost always occurs in children, according to St. Jude’s Hospital. Neuroblastoma comprises 50% of all cancers that are diagnosed in infants, being the most common cancer in infants under 12 months of age, with the majority of cases diagnosed by age 5, as per the American Cancer Society (ACS). Since approximately 70% of neuroblastoma patients are diagnosed at a late stage, innovative treatment options and new approaches are vital. Neuroblasts are cells found in fetuses that ultimately develop into neurons. The CLBPEC cell line was established from neuroblastoma cells of a patient and is a powerful tool for performing transfection studies in the quest to find a viable cure for the disease. CLBPEC cells are widely used in the study of cancers that affect young children. Altogen Biosystems provides lipid-based high-efficiency transfection reagent kits for the CLBPEC neuroblastoma cell line that is an appropriate host for studying pediatric brain tumors.
Figure 1. GAPD mRNA levels were quantified using real-time RT-PCR in the CLBPEC 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 GAPD 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=5).
Figure 2. Protein expression of GAPDH in CLBPEC cells. DNA plasmid expressing GAPDH or siRNA targeting GAPDH were transfected into CLBPEC 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 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.
