SK-MEL-28 Cell Line:

The SK-MEL-28 cell line was established from the skin of a 51-year-old male patient who was suffering from malignant melanoma (skin cancer).  This cell line could be useful for studying the effects of skin cancer. SK-Mel-28 cells exhibit polygonal cell morphology, and this is just one of many melanoma cell lines (also named SK-Mel). These tumorigenic human cells are very useful for molecular and cell biology research.

Data:

SKMEL28 Transfection Reagent

Figure 1. siRNAs targeting Lamin A/C mRNA or non-silencing control siRNA were transfected into SKMEL28 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/C in SK-MEL-28 cells. DNA plasmid expressing Lamin A/C or siRNA targeting Lamin A/C were transfected into SK-MEL-28 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.
