NCI-N87 Cell Avalanche™ Transfection Reagent (human gastric carcinoma cell)
NCI-N87 Cell Avalanche™ Transfection Reagent is a new class of unique chemical formulations specifically formulated and optimized for transfecting NCI-N87 Cells. The proprietary formulation of lipids and polymers ensures the highest possible transfection efficiencies and viabilities for NCI-N87 Cells
Cell Line Information:
Depositors: J Park
Growth Properties: adherent
Organism: Homo sapiens
Disease: gastric carcinoma
Derived from metastatic site: liver
Isolation date: 1976
Receptors: acetylcholine, muscarinic, expressed 
Oncogene: myc ; erb B2
Cytogenetic Analysis: near diploid; DM were present in 64% of cells examined
Comments: NCI-N87 cells express the surface glycoproteins carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) and TAG 72, and are L-dopa decarboxylase (DDC) negative. They were minimally positive for vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) receptors and lacked gastrin receptors. They were found to express receptors for muscarinic cholinergic agents.

|FIG. 1. High throughput test of transfection efficiency (determined as RLU/mg) on NCI-N87 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 NCI-N87 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 NCI-N87 Cell Avalanche Transfection Reagent.
For Other Cells:
|NCI-N87 Cell Avalanche™ Transfection Reagent (human gastric carcinoma 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.
