Comments:
The Hs 578T line was originated by A.J. Hackett, et al. along with the Hs 578Bst (see ATCC HTB-125), which is a normal fibroblast-like line from the same patient (J.Natl.Cancer Inst. 1977. 58: 1795-1806). The Hs 578T line had a mixed polygonal morphology initially, but a stellate cell type was selected for during passage and by cloning. As with Hs 578Bst, no estrogen receptors or endogenous viruses were detected.
Hs 578T is one of the cell lines of the NCI-60 panel which represents different cancer types and has been widely utilized for drug screening and molecular target identification.

Data:
FIG. 1. High throughput test of transfection efficiency (determined as RLU/mg) on Hs 578T 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 Hs 578T 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 Hs 578T Cell Avalanche® Transfection Reagent.
 
FIG. 2. Hs 578T cells were transfected with GFP vector (pEGFP-N3) by using Hs 578T Cell Avalanche® Transfection Reagent. The cells were visualized by Nikon Eclipse Fluorescence microscope 48 hours post transfection.
 

For Other Cells:
Hs 578T Cell Avalanche® Transfection Reagent (human breast carcinoma cell) can also be used on the following cells with high transfection efficiencies.

BT-20 Cell
HCC1937 Cell
MCF7 cell
T47D 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.
