LoVo Cell Line:
Colorectal cancer is the third most commonly detected cancer in the United States, reportedly accounting for nearly 50,000 fatalities annually, as per the American Cancer Society (ACS). The LoVo epithelial cell line was isolated in 1971 from a metastatic tumor of a 56-year-old Caucasian male with colorectal adenocarcinoma. LoVo cells express multiple oncogenes, including N-ras, H-ras, Myb, c-myc, K-ras, sis and fos genes. Also, CC-3 and CC-4 tumor-specific nuclear matrix proteins are expressed. However, the cells are negative for expression of colon antigen 3 and CSAp (CSAp-). The LoVo cell line presents an aneuploid karyotype with a modal number of 49 and a doubling time of approximately 37 hours. A broad range of LoVo cells shows an extra B chromosome as well as altered A2. The LoVo cell line is a suitable host for studying various types of colon cancer. Altogen Biosystems provides highly efficient transfection reagent kits for the LoVo cell line.
Figure 1. siRNAs targeting Lamin A/C mRNA or non-silencing control siRNA were transfected into LoVo 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 in LoVo cells. DNA plasmid expressing Lamin A or siRNA targeting Lamin A were transfected into LoVo 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.
