Hepa 1-6 Cell Line:
The Hepa 1-6 cell line is derived from the BW7756 mouse (Mus musculus) hepatoma that arose from a C57/L mouse. It was originally established from mouse liver cells, which suffered from hepatoma (liver cancer). The cells are tumorigenic and exhibit epithelial morphology. Hepa 1-6 cells make a good transfection host, and have been tested negative for mousepox. Hepa 1-6 cell line used in biomedical research to study mammalian liver tissue functions.
Figure 1. siRNAs targeting Lamin A/C mRNA or non-silencing control siRNA were transfected into Hepa 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 Hepa 1-6 cells. DNA plasmid expressing Lamin A/C or siRNA targeting Lamin A/C were transfected into Hepa 1-6 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.
