CT26WT Cell Line:

CT26WT is a mouse colon adenocarcinoma cell line that is commonly used as a syngeneic model for studying the immune response to cancer in mice. Colon cancer is the fourth most common cancer detected in the United States. In addition to being responsible for over 95,000 new cases annually, it has an increased incidence rate in patients younger than age 50, as per the Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA). The CT26WT colon cancer cell line was derived from BALB/c mice that developed aggressive colon carcinoma as a result of chemically induced mutation and cloned with the retroviral vector LXSN, containing the lacZ gene. CT26WT is a highly tumorigenic cell line, which is commonly employed in the drug development for colon cancer. Also, CT26WT cells are often used as a model for the testing of immunotherapy protocols, as well as transfection host cell line for research studies on the immune response. Altogen Biosystems provides lipid-based high-efficiency transfection reagent kits for the CT26WT cell line that have demonstrated consistent results and low cytotoxicity.

Figure 1. Cyclophilin B silencing efficiency was determined by qRT-PCR in CT26WT 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 CT26.WT cells. DNA plasmid expressing Cyclophilin B or siRNA targeting Cyclophilin B were transfected into CT26.WT 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.
