SK-OV-3 Cell Line:
The SK-OV-3 cell line was established in 1973 using the ovarian tissue derived from a sample removed from a 64-year-old Caucasian female who suffered from adenocarcinoma (cancer). This tumorigenic cell line exhibits epithelial cell morphology, and can be used in scientific research by acting as a transfection host. SK-OV-3 cells have been known to be resistant to tumor necrosis, as well as several other cytotoxic drugs such as Adriamycin, cis-platinum, and diphtheria toxin.
Figure 1. Cyclophilin B silencing efficiency was determined by qRT-PCR in the SKOV3 cells transfected by Cyclophilin B siRNA or non-silencing siRNA control following the recommended transfection protocol. Cyclophilin mRNA expression levels were measured 48 hours post-transfection. 18S rRNA levels were used to normalize the Cyclophilin B data. Values are normalized to untreated sample. Data are presented as means ± SD (n=6).
