Description:
GenMute™ siRNA Transfection Reagent for C2C12 Cell is pre-optimized for transfecting siRNA to C2C12 cells. C2C12 cells were originally obtained by Yaffe and Saxel (1977) through selective serial passage of myoblasts cultured from the thigh muscle of C3H mice 70 h after a crush injury. These cells were shown to be capable of differentiation. C2C12 cells are a useful model to study the differentiation of non-muscle cells to skeletal muscle cells (e.g myosin phosphorylation mechanisms) and express muscle proteins and the androhen receptor (AR).

Size & content:
- GenMute™ Reagent, 1.0 ml, sufficient for ~833 reactions based on transfecting 20 pmoles siRNA or miRNA mimics in 24-well plate
- GenMute™ Transfection Buffer (5x ), formulated for maximal transfection efficiency, 8.0 ml to make 40 ml working solution

Refer to the following optimal transfection conditions for maximal silencing on C2C12 cells. GenMute™ reagent, 1.0 ml, is sufficient for ~833 transfections in 24 well plates or ~416 transfections in 6 well plates.
