Transfection Reagent for L6 Cells (Myeloma Cells, CRL-1458)

  • A biodegradable polymer based transfection agent – once inside the cell, the polymer degrades into smaller less toxic components reducing cell toxicity, facilitating release of the transgene, and improving transfection efficiency
  • Optimized for intracellular delivery of plasmid DNA, siRNA, microRNA, and mRNA
  • High transfection efficiency of both siRNA and plasmid DNA without compromising cell viability
  • Transfection kit includes Transfection Enhancer reagent
  • Gentle enough to be used for single cell analysis
  • Download in vitro L6 transfection protocol: [PDF]
  • Download PowerPoint presentation for L6 cells transfection kit: [PPT]
  • Developed and manufactured by Altogen Biosystems

Transfection Efficiency:

Reagent exhibits at least 84% transfection efficiency of siRNA delivery. Transfection efficiency was determined by qRT-PCR.

L6 Cell Line:

The L6 cell line was established by Dr. Yaffe using rat (Rattus norvegicus) thigh muscle. These cells exhibit myoblast morphology and resemble skeletal muscle tissue. L6 cells have a unique ability to fuse, in a cell culture, to create multinucleated myotubes as well as striated fibers. These cells have been tested as negative for mousepox (ectromelia virus). These cells are often used in cell biology and molecular biology research.

Figure 1. Cyclophilin B silencing efficiency was determined by qRT-PCR in the L6 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 L6 cells. DNA plasmid expressing Cyclophilin B or siRNA targeting Cyclophilin B were transfected into L6 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.
