C2C12 Cell Line:
The C2C12 cell line was established from a subclone of a mouse (Mus musculus) cell line. This is a muscle tissue cell line, which exhibits myoblast morphology. This cell line acts as a good transfection model, but it differentiates rapidly. C2C12 has been tested negative for mousepox (ectromelia virus). These cells could be useful for biomedical research and cell biology, especially of mammalian myoblast cells.
Figure 1. GAPD mRNA levels were quantified using real-time RT-PCR in the C2C12 cells transfected with siRNAs targeting GAPD or non-silencing siRNA. Forty-eight hours post-transfection, the cells were harvested and analyzed by real-time RT-PCR for GAPD mRNA expression levels. Data were normalized against the 18S rRNA signal. Control samples were either mock-transfected or untreated. Values are normalized to untreated sample. Data are means ± SD (n=5).
