Multiporator Transfection Protocol Protocol No. 4308 915.035 12/1999 Cell line Primary cells: Adult heart muscle cells from rat, 6 days in culture Transfection with Plasmid pCMV--galactosidase (in bidistilled H2O) Electroporation buffer Eppendorf Isoosmolar Electroporation Buffer (PI) Culture medium M199 / HEPES (2 mM carnithin, 5 mM taurine, 10 M cytosine-arabinofur.)+ 20% FCS Outgrowth medium HEPES-buffer (140 mM NaCl, 3.6 mM KCl, 1.2 mM MgSO4, 1 mM CaCl2, 11 mM glucose, 100 U/ml penicillin, 100 g/ml streptomycin, 20 mM HEPES, pH 7.4) without phenol red + 10% FCS Cuvette Eppendorf, 2 mm gap width, 400 l Temperature RT (20-25 C) Reference Dr. Gerhild Taimor Justus-Liebig-Universitt Physiologisches Institut Aulweg 129 D-35392 Gieen

  1. Harvest the cells by collagenase treatment (0.4 mg/ml, 30 min., 37 C) and centrifuge them (for 2 minutes, 300 x g, at room temperature).
  2. Resuspend the cells in M199 / 0.5% FCS, determine the number of cells and centrifuge them (for 2 minute s, 300 x g, at room temperature). Remove supernatant.

    Note: The overall incubation time in the Eppendorf Electroporation Buffer must not exceed 30 minutes to guarantee a successful electroporation!

  3. Resuspend the cells in Isoosmolar Electroporation Buffer. When doing so, set the cell concentration to 1 x 104 - 105 cells/ml.
  4. Add and mix plasmid DNA (5-20 g/ml final concentration, in bidistilled H2O).
  5. Transfer 400 l cell suspension into electroporation cuvettes (2 mm gap width). The cell suspension must be free of air bubbles.
  6. Electroporation:

    Mode Eukaryotes Voltage (V) 100 V Time constant (T) 50 s No. of pulses (n) 1
  7. After the pulse, allow the cell suspension to stand in the cuvette for 10 minutes at room temperature.
  8. Carefully transfer the cell suspension from the cuvette to 3-5 ml HEPES medium without phenol red / 20% FCS, and cultivate them in a 35 mm culture dish.

Detection methods for transfection:

The expression of the plasmid pCMV--galactosidase can be detected clearly after 24-48 hours with X-gal-staining under a microscope.
