HCT-116 Cell Line:

Colon cancer mostly affects older people in their late 60s and early 70s; however, the only group that is associated with increased incidence rates is people younger than age 50, as per the Colon Cancer Alliance (CCA). The HCT-116 colon cancer cell line is essential for researching biochemical pathways that aid the proliferation of colon carcinoma. The HCT-116 cell line was derived from epithelial tumorigenic colon tissue of an adult male with colorectal carcinoma. These cells have a mutation in the 13 codon of the ras proto-oncogene, and therefore they are useful for PCR assays studying this codon. They are also positive for transforming growth factor beta 1 and beta 2 expression. This cell line is useful for biomedical research related to colon cancer. Altogen Biosystems provides highly efficient lipid-based transfection reagent kits for the HCT-116 colon cancer cell line.


HCT116 Transfection Reagent

Figure 1. siRNAs targeting Lamin A/C mRNA or non-silencing control siRNA were transfected into HCT-116 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 HCT-116 cells. DNA plasmid expressing Lamin A/C or siRNA targeting Lamin A/C were transfected into HCT-116 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.
