LS-174T Cell Line:
Colorectal cancer cell lines represent accurate molecular models of primary carcinomas and have proven to be potent tools in preclinical colon cancer research. The LS 174T epithelial cell line was isolated from a 58-year-old Caucasian female with colorectal adenocarcinoma and produces high amounts of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA). In addition to being positive for the expression of different oncogenes, such as c-myc, N-myc, H-ras, N-ras, Myb, and fos, the LS 174T cell line possesses abundant microvilli and vacuoles. LS 174T cells are positive for mRNA expression; however, they are negative for p53 antigen expression. This cell line is commonly used for oncological research as these cells produce vast amounts of carcinoembryonic antigen, a tumor marker. Altogen Biosystems supplies multiple in vitro transfection kits, including the cationic lipids formulation LS 174T transfection reagent kit for human colon cancer cells. The LS 174T reagent is compatible with both standard and reverse transfection methods, yielding very high transfection efficiency, as indicated by qRT-PCR.
Figure 1. Cyclophilin B silencing efficiency was determined by qRT-PCR in the LS174T 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 LS-174T cells. DNA plasmid expressing Cyclophilin B or siRNA targeting Cyclophilin B were transfected into LS-174T 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.
