NCI-H23 Cell Line:

The NCI-H23 cell line was established from lung cancer tissue from a 51-year-old male with lung adenocarcinoma. The cell sample was removed prior to any therapy for the disease. NCI-H23 cells exhibit epithelial morphology and carry the K-ras 12 mutation, as well as a mutation in the 246 codon of the p53 gene. It has also been known to have a population doubling time of nearly every 38 hours. NCI-H23 cell line expresses heterogeneous mRNA expression for platelet-derived growth factor subunits A and B, which transforms the epidermal growth factor receptor as well as growth factor alpha and beta. NCI-H23 cells are negative for neurofilament but stain positive for keratins 18 and 5+8. Furthermore, NCI-H23 cells have no detectable amplification of c-myc RNA but exhibit a high degree of c-myc DNA. This cell line is vital for lung cancer research as well as in drug discovery and gene expression studies. Altogen Biosystems provides lipid-based transfection reagent kits for the NCI-H23 lung cancer cell line.


NCI-H23 Transfection Reagent

Figure 1. siRNAs targeting Lamin A/C mRNA or non-silencing control siRNA were transfected into NCI-H23 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 NCI-H23 cells. DNA plasmid expressing Lamin A or siRNA targeting Lamin A were transfected into NCI-H23 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:
Altogen Biosystems transfection and electroporation products for life sciences and cancer research. Company developed two types of in vivo delivery kits for animal research: Tissue-targeted reagents (delivery to liver, pancreas, and kidney tissues), and broad range in vivo delivery reagents (PEG-Liposome, Nanoparticle-based, Lipid-based, and Polymer-based kits).  Advanced formulation of reagents and optimized transfection protocols provide efficient intracellular delivery of proteins, DNA, mRNA, shRNA, siRNA, and other negatively charged molecules in vitro and in vivo.
