GenJet™ DNA In Vitro Transfection Reagent for Caco-2 Cell is pre-optimized for transfecting Caco-2 cells.  The Caco-2 cell line is an immortalized line of heterogeneous human epithelial colorectal adenocarcinoma cells, developed by the Sloan-Kettering Institute for Cancer Research through research conducted by Dr. Jorgen Fogh.  The Caco-2 cell line is widely used with in vitro assays to predict the absorption rate of candidate drug compounds across the intestinal epithelial cell barrier. The assay requires that drug absorption rates be determined 21 days after Caco-2 cell seeding to allow for monolayer formation and cell differentiation.  Caco-2 cells may also refer to a cell monolayer absorption model.  Cell-based functional assays, such as the Caco-2 drug transport model for assessing intestinal transport, are extremely valuable for screening lead compounds in drug discovery.

Refer to the following optimal transfection conditions for maximal transfection efficiency on Caco-2 cells. GenJet™ reagent, 1.0 ml, is sufficient for 300 to 600 transfections in 24 well plates or 50 to 100 transfections in 6 well plates.
