Neuro-2a Cell Line:
Neuroblastoma is the most frequent extracranial solid tumor in children, and roughly half of the patients experience bone metastasis accompanied by bone pain, leading to poor prognosis for those affected. The Neuro-2a cell line was established from brain tissue of an albino house mouse (Mus musculus) with neuroblastoma. These cells exhibit neuronal and amoeboid stem cell morphology, making them uniquely useful for scientific study. Also, the Neuro-2a cell line is susceptible to herpes simplex virus, human poliovirus 1, and vesicular stomatitis virus. Neuro-2a cells have been known to create large amounts of microtubular protein. Neuro-2a cells make for reliable transfection hosts due to their neuronal and amoeboid morphology. Altogen Biosystems offers in vitro transfection reagents delivering satisfactory results, including a liposome formulation Neuro-2a transfection reagent kit for neuroblastoma cells that yields high transfection efficiency and is considered an appropriate host for studying brain tumors.
Figure 1. Cyclophilin B silencing efficiency was determined by qRT-PCR in Neuro2a 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 Neuro-2a cells. DNA plasmid expressing Cyclophilin B or siRNA targeting Cyclophilin B were transfected into Neuro-2a 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.
