HT-1080 Cell Line:
Fibrosarcoma is a malignant tumor originating from fibrous connective tissue that mostly affects men in their 30s and 40s and involves immature proliferating fibroblasts. The HT-1080 cell line was originally established in 1972 from the tumorigenic connective tissue of a 35-year-old Caucasian male patient with fibrosarcoma. These cells exhibit an epithelial morphology and contain an activated N-ras oncogene. HT-1080 cells are susceptible to a variety of viruses, including polio, RD-114 feline virus, feline leukemia virus, and vesicular stomatitis virus. These cells are used for research related to cancer of connective tissues. A life science company Altogen Biosystems manufactures in vitro transfection kits for a vast array of cell lines, including the two-component lipid-based advanced formulation HT-1080 transfection reagent kit for human fibrosarcoma cells that yields high transfection efficiency of siRNA delivery.
Figure 1. GAPD mRNA levels were quantified using real-time RT-PCR in the HT-1080 cells transfected with siRNAs targeting GAPD or non-silencing siRNA. Forty-eight hours post-transfection, the cells were harvested and analyzed by real-time RT-PCR for GAPD mRNA expression levels. Data were normalized against the 18S rRNA signal. Control samples were either mock-transfected or untreated. Values are normalized to untreated sample. Data are means ± SD (n=5).
Figure 2. Protein expression of GAPDH in HT-1080 cells. DNA plasmid expressing GAPDH or siRNA targeting GAPDH were transfected into HT-1080 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 is a life sciences company that offers cell type-specific and pre-optimized transfection products, electroporation kits, and in vivo delivery reagents.
