产品特性 CytoSelect™ Cell Transformation Assay does not involve subjective manual counting of colonies or require a 3-4 week incubation period. Instead cells are incubated only 6-8 days in a proprietary semisolid agar media before being solubilized, lysed and detected by the patented CyQuant® GR Dye in a fluorescence plate reader (see Assay Principle below). Alternatively, viable transformed cells can be easily recovered for further culturing and testing, such as in protein/DNA array analysis and cancer vaccine development. This format provides a quantitative, high-throughput method to accurately measure cell transformation, while the short incubation time makes it possible to assay cells transiently transfected with oncogenes or siRNA. The CytoSelect™ Cell Transformation Kit (Cell Recovery Compatible) provides a robust system for measuring in vitro drug sensitivity, screening oncogenes and cell transformation inhibitors, and allows for transformed cell recovery. Each Trial Size kit provides sufficient quantities to perform 24 assays in a 96-well plate, 12 assays in a 48-well plate, 6 assays in a 24-well plate, or 3 assays in a 12-well plate. 2

背景 Neoplastic transformation occurs via a series of genetic and epigenetic alterations that yield a cell population that is capable of proliferating independently of both external and internal signals that normally restrain growth. For example, transformed cells show reduced requirements for extracellular growth promoting factors, are not restricted by cell-cell contact, and are often immortal. Anchorage-independent growth is one of the hallmarks of transformation, which is considered the most accurate and stringent in vitro assay for detecting malignant transformation of cells. Traditionally, the soft agar colony formation assay is a common method to monitor anchorage- independent growth, which measures proliferation in a semisolid culture media after 3-4 weeks by manual counting of colonies. Standard soft agar assays are usually performed in 100-mm or 60 mm dishes, where cells are allowed to grow inside a semisolid culture media for 3-4 weeks before sizable colonies appear. This method is quite cumbersome, time-consuming, and difficult when testing a large number of samples. Additionally, the manual counting of colonies is highly subjective, with varying colony sizes, it's difficult to determine meaningful results.
应用备注 Optimal working dilution should be determined by the investigator.

    I. Preparation of Base Agar Matrix Layer

    1. Heat the 10X CytoSelect™ Agar Matrix Solution to 90-95 °C in a water bath for 30 minutes, or until agar matrix liquefies. Transfer the tube to a 37 °C water bath for 20 minutes and maintain until needed.
    2. Warm the 2X DMEM/20 % FBS medium (see Preparation of Reagents section) to 37 °C in a water bath. Allow at least 30 minutes for the temperature to equilibrate.
    3. According to Table 2 (below), prepare the desired volume of Base Agar Matrix Layer in the following sequence: a. In a sterile tube, add the appropriate volume of 2X DMEM/20 % FBS medium. b. Next, add the corresponding volume of sterile water. Mix well. c. Finally, add the corresponding volume of 10X CytoSelect™ Agar Matrix Solution. Mix well. Note: The 10X CytoSelect™ Agar Matrix Solution is slightly viscous, care should be taken in accurately pipetting the appropriate volume. 2X DMEM/20 % Sterile Water 10X Total Volume of # of Tests in 96- FBS Medium (mL) CytoSelect™ Base Agar Matrix well Plate (50 (mL) Agar Matrix Layer (mL) μL/test) Solution (mL) 0.625 0.5 0.125 1.25 25 Table
    4. Preparation of Base Agar Matrix Layer
    5. After mixing, maintain the Base Agar Matrix Layer at 37 °C to avoid gelation. 5
    6. Dispense 50 μL of Base Agar Matrix Layer into each well of a 96-well sterile flat-bottom microplate (samples should be assayed in triplicate). Gently tap the plate a few times to ensure the Base Agar Matrix Layer evenly covers the wells. Notes: • Work quickly with the layer to avoid gelation. Also, try to avoid adding air bubbles to the well. • To avoid fast and uneven evaporation that leads to aberrant results, we suggest not using the wells on the plate edge, or filling the edge wells with medium to reduce evaporation.
    7. Transfer the plate to 4 °C for 30 minutes to allow the Base Agar Matrix Layer to solidify.
    8. Prior to adding the Cell Suspension/Agar Matrix Layer (Section II), allow the plate to warm to room temperature for 30 minutes.

结果分析
  1. Compare RFU values with the Cell Dose Curve and extrapolate the cell concentration.
  2. Calculate the Total Transformed Cell Number/Well Total Transformed Cells/Well = cells/mL x 0.050 mL/well For example: If you extrapolate your RFU value from your cell dose curve and determine you have 500,000 cells/mL in your sample. Total Transformed Cells/Well = 500,000 cells/mL x 0.050 mL/well = 25,000 cells/well
