tools for transfection study - Other transfection tools? (Aug/08/2006 )
I would like to share and also learn more about some of the tools used in transfection studies:
From what I gather, some of the tools scientist used to control the experiments are as follows:
1) Cyclohexamine-used as a translation inhibitor
2) D-mannitol-used as a tool to induce apoptosis via the mitochondria ion gate-channel
3) Dextran sulfate-packing the free-floating proteins in the cell membrane/packing agent
4)reporter gene systems-CAT/luciferase
Any update or new techniques will be appreciated.
I am not sure what did you mean by transfection study. A study about transfection process or a study utlizes transfection techniques?
