MIA PaCa-2 Cell Avalanche™ Transfection Reagent (human pancreas carcinoma cell)

Transfection of suspension cells, or suspension/adherent mixed cells, such as MIA PaCa-2 Cells, has always been challenging, both technically and financially. The most common systems currently used for molecular delivery to these cells include expensive electroporation instruments and relatively toxic chemical formulations. MIA PaCa-2 Cell Avalanche™ Transfection Reagent is a new, proprietary solution specifically designed for transfection on MIA PaCa-2 Cells. The proprietary formulation of lipids and polymers ensures the highest possible transfection efficiencies and viabilities for MIA PaCa-2 Cells. No other transfection reagents can match the efficiency, convenience, and gentleness of MIA PaCa-2 Cell Avalanche™ Transfection Reagent for transfection on MIA PaCa-2 Cells

Cell Line Information:

Designations: MIA PaCa-2
Organism: Homo sapiens (human)
Tissue: carcinoma; pancreas
Age: 65 years
Gender: male
Ethnicity: Caucasian
Morphology: epithelial -like cells with clusters of rounded cells in suspension
Growth properties: adherent with many cells in suspension
Products: human colony stimulating factor, subclass I (CSF-I); plasminogen activator
Depositos: A. Yunis
The MIA PaCa-2 cell line was established by A. Yunis, et al. in 1975 from tumor tissue of the pancreas obtained from a 65-year-old Caucasian male. The established cell line reportedly has a doubling time of about 40 hours and a colony-forming efficiency in soft agar of approximately 19%. The line is sensitive to asparaginase.

The Transfection Reagent:

Transfection of suspension cells, or suspension/adherent mixed cells, such as MIA PaCa-2 Cells, has always been challenging, both technically and financially. The most common systems currently used for molecular delivery to these cells include expensive electroporation instruments and relatively toxic chemical formulations.

MIA PaCa-2 Cell Avalanche™ Transfection Reagent is a new, proprietary solution specifically designed for transfection on MIA PaCa-2 Cells. The proprietary formulation of lipids and polymers ensures the highest possible transfection efficiencies and viabilities for MIA PaCa-2 Cells. No other transfection reagents can match the efficiency, convenience, and gentleness of MIA PaCa-2 Cell Avalanche™ Transfection Reagent for transfection on MIA PaCa-2 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:

  • Unique formulation-maximize transfection performance in MIA PaCa-2 Cells.
  • Extremely gentle to cells
  • Deliver single or multiple plasmids
  • Easy-to-use protocol: Just mix nucleic acids with the reagent to form complexes and simply add the mixture to cells
  • Reproducible: due to highly controlled chemical synthesis of each of the ingredients, the reagent forms uniformly sized complex particles with nucleic acids. With optimized protocol, our reagent will ensure the reproducible highest transfection results.
  • Economical: High efficiency means less amount of nucleic acid & reagent is needed
  • Developed and manufactured by EZ Biosystems
 
Data:
 
FIG. 1. High throughput test of transfection efficiency (determined as RLU/mg) on MIA PACA-2 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 MIA PACA-2 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 MIA PACA-2 Cell Avalanche Transfection Reagent.
 

For Other Cells:
MIA PaCa-2 Cell Avalanche™ Transfection Reagent (human pancreas carcinoma cell) can also be used on the following cells with high transfection efficiencies.

786-O Cell
Caki-1 Cell
MDCK Cell
Vero Cell
293 Cell
293T/17 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.
