Comments: SW480 was established from a primary adenocarcinoma of the colon. The line is negative for CSAp (CSAp-) and colon antigen 3, and is positive for keratin by immunoperoxidase staining. The cells express elevated levels of p53 protein. The line is positive for expression of c-myc, K-ras, H-ras, N-ras, myb, sis and fos oncogenes. The cells have been reported to produce GM-CSF.
The Transfection Reagent:
SW480 Cell Avalanche™ Transfection Reagent is a new class of unique chemical formulations specifically formulated and optimized for transfecting SW480 Cells. The proprietary formulation of lipids and polymers ensures the maximum possible transfection efficiency and cell viability. No other transfection reagents can match the efficiency, convenience, and gentleness of SW480 Cell Avalanche™ Transfection Reagent for transfection on SW480 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?

|FIG. 1. High throughput test of transfection efficiency (determined as RLU/mg) on T84 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 T84 cells. This test result was confirmed with repeat experiments. The candidate formulas were also tested on SW480 cells by tranfecting GFP expression plasmid, and got the same high transfection efficiency after flow cytometry analysis. The one that showed the optimal balance of potent & low cytotoxicity (percentage of 7AAD positive cells) among those candidate formulas was later named as SW480 Cell Avalanche Transfection Reagent.
For Other Cells:
|SW480 Cell Avalanche™ Transfection Reagent (human colon adenocarcinoma cell) can also be used on the following cells with high transfection efficiencies.
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
