4T1 is a 6-thioguanine resistant cell line selected from the 410.4 tumor without mutagen treatment. When injected into BALB/c mice, 4T1 spontaneously produces highly metastatic tumors that can metastasize to the lung, liver, lymph nodes and brain while the primary tumor is growing in situ.
The tumor growth and metastatic spread of 4T1 cells in BALB/c mice very closely mimic human breast cancer. This tumor is an animal model for stage IV human breast cancer. 4T1-induced tumors can also be used as a post-operative model as well as a non-surgical model because the 4T1-induced tumor metastasizes spontaneously in both models with similar kinetics. Because 4T1 is resistant to 6-thioquanine, micro-metastatic cells (as few as 1) can be detected in many distant site organs with better accuracy than most tumor models.

The Transfection Reagent:

4T1 Cell Avalanche™ Transfection Reagent is a new class of unique chemical formulations specifically formulated and optimized for transfecting 4T1 Cells. The proprietary formulation of lipids and polymers ensures the highest possible transfection efficiencies and viabilities for 4T1 Cells. For details of the developing process of this reagent, please go to: How did EZ Biosystems develop Avalanche™ Cell type/cell line specific transfection reagent series?

Features:

Data:
FIG. 1. High throughput test of transfection efficiency (determined as RLU/mg) on 4T1 cells after transfection of luciferase reporter gene by using our 172 proprietary transfection formulas and several most popular commercial transfection reagents. The yellow box showed the results of 4 commercial transfection reagents. The red lines marked our candidate formulas with the highest transfection efficiency for 4T1 cells. This test result was confirmed with repeat experiments. The one that showed the optimal balance of potent & low cytotoxicity among those candidate formulas after flow cytometry analysis on the percentage of 7AAD positive cells was later named as this 4T1 Cell Avalanche Transfection Reagent.
 
FIG. 2. 4T1 cells were transfected with GFP vector (pEGFP-N3) by using 4T1 Avalanche® Transfection Reagent. The cells were visualized by Nikon Eclipse Fluorescence microscope 24 hours post transfection.
 

For Other Cells:
4T1 Cell Avalanche™ Transfection Reagent (mouse breast cancer cell) can also be used on the following cells with high transfection efficiencies.

ZR-75-1 Cell
BT-20 Cell
MDA-MB-453 Cell

Recommended protocols for these cells will be provided with the reagent. The protocols usually provide satisfactory transfection efficiency with invisible cytotoxicity. However, optimization may be needed for certain type of cells. Optimizations may include: the amount of DNA and this transfection reagent; cell density; transfection reagent/DNA ratio, or incubation time for the mixture of transfection reagent/DNA etc. For best transfection result, we recommend using the respective cell type/cell line specific Avalanche transfection reagents. Those reagents have been optimized on both recipes and protocols, and have been proved to have the best transfection results for the respective cell lines or primary cells. You can easily find the respective Avalanche transfection reagents specific for your cells by using the filters of our product list.
