BJAB cells: does anyone have a specific protocol for transfection? - (Jul/01/2015 )



Does anyone have a specific protocol on how to transfect BJAB cell line with a lentivirus without using electroporation and possibly, a lipid based reagent instead? Im new to the world of transfection and I would like to introduce a plasmid with luciferase into my BJAB cell line. 



Any suggestion to how I should proceed?

Hi Jill,


The successful with high efficiency transfection method depends on several factors, e.g. cell type, nature of gene/s, trasfection conditions..etc.


You may use Lipofectamine 3000, which is based on lipid nanoparticle approach. I've used this method to transfect mouse myeloma cell line (NS0) successfully.
