Is it possible to transfect DNA into insect cell lines such as Drosophila melanogaster S2?
Customers have successfully transfected plasmid DNA into insect cell lines S2 and Sf9 using Effectene Transfection Reagent. For a reference for Drosophila S2 cells see QIAGEN News article Issue No. 4, 1999: 'Effectene Reagent yields high transfection efficiencies with Drosophila melanogaster S2 cells'.
Customer data for transfection of DNA into SF9 Spodoptera frugiperda cells using Effectene and SuperFect Transfection Reagent can be found in our Transfection Cell Database.
