Electroporation Kit for RBL-2H3 Cells (Basophilic Leukemia Cells, CRL-2256)
- Electroporation Kit include: electroporation buffer + buffer-specific optimized electroporation protocols
- Pre-optimized electroporation protocols are provided for delivery of plasmids (DNA), siRNA, mRNA, and proteins
- Proprietary electroporation buffer formulation mimics cellular cytoplasm composition (superior electropore resealing)s
- Certified RNAse- and DNAse-free electroporation buffer
- Effective electroporation delivery and high cell viability provides reproducible electroporation results
- High cell viability and superior cell recovery rates
- Electroporation protocols are provided with with the purchase of the Electroporation Kit
- Developed and manufactured by Altogen Biosystems
4 mL of electroporation buffer is sufficient for 20 reactions using standard 0.2 cm elecrtoporation cuvette
30 mL of electroporation buffer is sufficient for 150 reactions using standard 0.2 cm elecrtoporation cuvette
Electroporation kit provides 80-95% delivery efficiency of siRNA. Electroporation efficiency was determined by RT-PCR.

RBL-2H3 Cell Line:
RBL-2H3 was established in 1978 in the Laboratory of Immunology at the National Institute of Dental Research from basophilic leukemia cells in a Wistar Rat (Rattus norvegicus). These cells are useful because they can secrete histamine and other mediators. They have been useful to study of secretion in mast cells. Although nearly all lots of fetal bovine serum support the growth of these cells, the cells grown in some lots degranulate better after FcERI aggregation. RBL-1 (CRL-1378) is another basophilic leukemia cell line that does not degranulate.
