Transfection of KAH126

  1. Prepare DNA-Lipofectamine complexes (600 μl per sample) as follows:
    1. Label sterile microfuge (1.5 ml) tubes.
    2. Add 570 μL Opti-MEM to each 20 μL DNA sample.
    3. Add 2.5 μL PLUS reagent to each DNA+Opti-MEM sample. Incubate for 5 minutes at room temperature.
    4. Add 7.5 μL Lipofectamine LTX to each DNA+Opti-MEM+PLUS reagent sample. Incubate for 30 minutes at room temperature.
  2. Add the total 600 μL of DNA+Opti-MEM+PLUS reagent+Lipofectamine mixture drop-wise to each appropriate well of cells.
  3. Incubate cells at 37°C in a CO2 incubator
  4. (Optional) To reduce toxicity, after 5-6 hours wash cells once with warm 1xPBS to remove excess DNA-Lipo complexes. Add fresh antibiotic-free growth medium.
