FaDu Cell Line:
The FaDu cell line was established using human hypopharyngeal carcinoma cells from a patient suffering from cancer. FaDu cell lines have been known to produce proinflammatory cytokines and activate neutrophils in vitro, along with HT-29 cell line. These cells are also widely used in the study of pharyngeal squamous-cell carcinoma. This cell line is uniquely useful as a transfection host for many types of molecular and cellular biology studies.
Figure 1. Cyclophilin B silencing efficiency was determined by qRT-PCR in FaDu 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 FaDu cells. DNA plasmid expressing Cyclophilin B or siRNA targeting Cyclophilin B were transfected into FaDu 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.
