Pro deliverin

Takuma Kato, Masakazu Tanaka, Makoto Oba
Several protein transfection reagents are commercially available and are powerful tools for elucidating function of a protein in a cell. Here we described protein transfection studies of the commercially available reagents, Pro-DeliverIN, Xfect, and TuboFect, using Huh-7 multicellular tumor spheroid (MCTS) as a three-dimensional in vitro tumor model. A cellular uptake study using specific endocytosis inhibitors revealed that each reagent was internalized into Huh-7 MCTS by different mechanisms, which were the same as monolayer cultured Huh-7 cells...

A protein transfection reagent is a powerful tool for elucidating a protein function in a cell, and plays an important role in the fields of cell biology and drug discovery. Many researchers have developed protein delivery systems and several systems are commercially available. In this study, we focus on the biological functions of three commercially available protein transfection reagents, Pro-DeliverIN, Xfect, and TurboFect, especially in their internalization routes by HeLa cells. A cellular uptake study using specific endocytosis inhibitors and confocal laser scanning microscope observation revealed that each reagent was internalized into HeLa cells by different mechanism...

Search Tips

Use Boolean operators: AND/OR

diabetic AND foot
diabetes OR diabetic

Exclude a word using the 'minus' sign

Virchow -triad

Use Parentheses

water AND (cup OR glass)

Add an asterisk (*) at end of a word to include word stems

Neuro* will search for Neurology, Neuroscientist, Neurological, and so on

Use quotes to search for an exact phrase

"primary prevention of cancer"
(heart or cardiac or cardio*) AND arrest -"American Heart Association"
