NCI-H358 Cell Line:
This epithelial cell line (NCI-H358) was established in 1981 from bronchiole (alveolus) tissue from a human lung. The patient these cells were removed from suffered from bronchioalveolar carcinoma, a type of lung cancer. The tumor tissue was removed prior to the patient undergoing chemotherapy. This cell line has been known to double every ~38 hours. NCI-H358 is very useful in vitro model for research on medical treatments relating to lung cancer.
Figure 1. Cyclophilin B silencing efficiency was determined by qRT-PCR in the NCI-H358 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 NCI-H358 cells. DNA plasmid expressing Cyclophilin B or siRNA targeting Cyclophilin B were transfected into NCI-H358 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 manufacturers preoptimized transfection kits for cancer research. Reagents and transfection protocols are optimized for individual cancer cell lines. Altogen Biosystems developed two types of in vivo delivery kits for animal research: Tissue-targeted reagents (delivery into liver, pancreas, and kidney tissues), and in vivo biodistribution reagents (PEG-Liposome, Nanoparticle, Lipid, and Polymer-based kits). Optimized transfection protocols provide efficient intracellular delivery of proteins, DNA, and RNA molecules in vitro and in vivo.
