Transfection Efficiency and Optimization

The two main purposes of transfection are to produce recombinant proteins and to specifically enhance or inhibit gene expression in transfected cells. As such, transfection is a powerful analytical tool for the study of the function and regulation of genes or gene products, for producing transgenic organisms, and as a method for gene therapy. This video provides an overview on what cellular transfection is and covers various aspects that one should consider in order to address specific transfection reagent needs, such as cell type selection, transfection method, and optimization strategies.
