  • Efficacy Comparison of Transfection Reagents in a Collecting Duct Cell Line

    The cortical collecting duct regulates ion and water homeostasis in the kidney. A cell line denoted M-1 has been established from the cortical collecting duct of a transgenic mouse that exhibits many functional properties of the original tissue. While this cell line is valuable for in vitro studies, the cells are not easily transfected. Frequently, adenovirus-mediated gene transfer is used. As adenovirus production requires several additional steps, we prefer chemical methods to achieve recombinant protein expression in M-1 cells. Previous attempts to transfect this cell line were unsuccessful with far less than 10% of transfectants, although different reagents were tried. Here we compare three commercially available transfection reagents in terms of the percentage of transfected cells and the suitability for using a reporter construct in M-1 cells. more

  • The New MagNA Pure 96 DNA and Viral NA Kits: Maximal Speed Combined with High Recovery

    The MagNA Pure 96 System is a brand-new system recently introduced to the market: it is a fully automated, ultra-fast system for high-throughput isolation of high- quality nucleic acids from various sample types that can handle sample volumes of up to 1 ml. The main features of the new system were described in the preceding Biochemica issue (4/2009). This system uses optimized kits with prefilled, ready-to-use reagents in combination with the appropriate automated isolation protocols. The configuration of the kits is based on the well-established magnetic bead technology that has been used successfully on different MagNA Pure Systems for many years now. The MagNA Pure 96 Kits are composed of reagent trays with different prefilled, sealed containers for the buffers and special bottles containing the magnetic particles. All kits are available as small-volume (SV) and large-­volume (LV) variants, depending on the sample amount to be processed. This article describes the features and the performance of the two M more

  • Superiority of FuGENE® HD Transfection Reagent in Minimizing Non-Specific Cellular Interferon Responses

    Many viruses, including human cytomegalovirus (HCMV), encode for genes that can modulate or interfere with the ability of cells to mount an effective antiviral response to infection. Transfection of viral genes into cultures of mammalian cells is an important research tool to evaluate the function of viral gene products. We utilized this approach to identify viral genes involved in modulation of interferon (IFN)-mediated cell signaling pathways. more

  • Viruses and Human Cancer (D2)

    In 1970, an authoritative book entitled “Viruses and Cancer” was published by Sir Christopher Andrews, one of the discoverers of influenza virus. On page 135 he wrote “Despite these findings, there is no doubt that as regards the generality of cancers in man, and indeed in other mammals, there is no more

  • Mechanisms of HIV Persistence: Implications for a Cure (E1)

    Despite long-term control of HIV replication with cART, HIV persists as silenced integrated DNA in memory CD4 T cells, and possibly in other cellular reservoirs, including naïve cells and macrophages. Low level replenishment of the reservoir via limited cycles of replication, may also contribute to more
