COLO-205 Cell Line:

The COLO 205 cell line was established in 1975 from a 70-year-old Caucasian male patient suffering from colon cancer. These cells exhibit epithelial cell morphology, and come from a Dukes’ type D tumor. The patient had been treated with 5-flourouracil for approximately 5 weeks before removal of the specimen. Also, the cells have been tested negative for CSAp, positive for keratin, and express a 36,000 dalton cell surface glycoprotein, which is has a related antigen. The COLO 205 cell line is similar to COLO 201, and was derived from the same patient.


COLO205 Cell Transfection Reagent

Figure 1. siRNAs targeting Lamin A/C mRNA or non-silencing control siRNA were transfected into COLO-205 cells following the recommended protocol. At 48 hours post-transfection the cells were analyzed by qRT-PCR for Lamin A/C 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=4).


Figure 2. Protein expression of Lamin A/C in COLO-205 cells. DNA plasmid expressing Lamin A/C or siRNA targeting Lamin A/C were transfected into COLO-205 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 preoptimized transfection products for life science research applications. 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 to liver, pancreas, and kidney tissues), and broad range in vivo delivery reagents (PEG-Liposome, Nanoparticle-based, Lipid-based, and Polymer-based kits). Advanced formulation of reagents and optimized transfection protocols provide efficient intracellular delivery of proteins, DNA, RNA, and any other negatively charged molecules in vitro and in vivo.
