HEK293 - (Aug/21/2007 )

Can anybody explain the differences between HEK293A and HEK293T?
I am planning to use lentivirus system for siRNA. A protocol suggests HEK293T. I am not sure how different 293A is from 293T.
Thank you. rolleyes.gif


For HEK 293T, see the "isolation" section of this web page:

we use 293FT's from invitrogen for lentivirus.
