BACKGROUND Transfection, the introduction of DNA into cells, is a powerful technique used to study in vivo gene function and regulation. Cytofect™-Hepatocyte Transfection kit is a plasmid DNA delivery system specifically optimized to deliver DNA into hepatocytes. This kit contains Cytofect 1, Viral Enhancer* and Media for transfection and culturing cells. Viral Enhancer complexes with DNA and Cytofect 1, and escorts the tranfection complex to the nucleus. The result has been high transfection efficiency and viability for these traditionally hard-to-transfect primary cells.
This Hepatocyte Transfection Kit has successfully transfected Rat Hepatocyes with high efficiency (40%) and viability (70%-95%)
