General description

Insect GeneJuice<TMSYMBOL></TMSYMBOL> Transfection Reagent is a proprietary liposome formulation optimized for maximal transfection efficiency of Sf9 insect cells. The reagent features extremely low toxicity to the cells and can be used for both transient and stable transfections in serum-containing or serum-free media, and for cotransfection of transfer plasmids with linearized virus DNA for the production of recombinant baculoviruses. Insect GeneJuice is ideal for large-scale protein expression in suspension-culture transfections of Sf9 insect cells when using pIEx<TMSYMBOL></TMSYMBOL> and pBiEx<TMSYMBOL></TMSYMBOL> vectors, which contain the immediate early baculovirus promoter, IE1.

  • When Insect Genejuice® used in conjunction with Sf9 cell line, raw relative light units (RLUs) from Renilla Luciferase expression with plex is 131,90 Vs. 75,726 when other reagent used with Sf9, thus 1.7 fold difference.
  • When Insect Genejuice® used in conjunction with Sf9 cell line, raw relative light units (RLUs) from Renilla Luciferase expression with plex is 131,90 Vs. 11,952 when other reagent used with High Five, thus 11 fold difference.
  • When Insect Genejuice® used in conjunction with Sf9 cell line, raw relative light units (RLUs) from Renilla Luciferase expression with plex is 131,90 Vs. 31,897 when Insect Genejuice used with High Five, thus 4.1 fold difference.

Insect GeneJuice Transfection Reagent is provided as a 2 mg/ml suspension in 20 mM MES, 150 mM NaCl, pH 6.2 buffer. One ml is sufficient for 12 or 125 transfections in 10-ml suspension culture flasks or 35-mm plates, respectively.
