Gene transfer into established and primary fibroblast cell lines: comparison of transfection methods and promoters.

The stable transfection of immortalized Rat-1 and rat skin primary fibroblast cell lines by calcium phosphate precipitation, lipofection and electroporation methods have been examined. The lipofection method was found to be better than the other methods in terms of higher transfection efficiency and convenient use. Expression of beta-galactosidase from two… CONTINUE READING
