Cell Line Information:
Cell Line Name: HCC2998
Tissue Sources: Large intestine; Colon;  
Carcinoma; Adenocarcinoma;
Morphology: epithelium
Institution: M.D. Anderson Hospital & Tumor Institute
Contributor: Fidler, IJ
Institution: Developmental Therapeutics Program National Cancer Institute,Frederick,MD 21701
Comments: HCC2998 is a highly differentiated human colon carcinoma cell line, which has been shown to be converted to a poorly differentiated one after expression of a constitutively active phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3' kinase). These cells express aberrant sizes of a regulatory subunit of PI3' kinase, p85alpha, with molecular weights of 50 and 76 kDa at a very low level.
HCC2998 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 HCC2998 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 HCC2998 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 HCC2998 Cell Avalanche® Transfection Reagent.
 

For Other Cells:
HCC2998 Cell Avalanche® Transfection Reagent (human colon adenocarcinoma cell) can also be used on the following cells with high transfection efficiencies.

HCT-15 Cell  
KM12 Cell  
T84 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.
