GenomONE-GX EX is a kit for dedicated use for transfection of DNA using the lipid-like substance and auxiliary reagents (including HVJ-E and Enhancer). In difficult-to-transfect cells (e.g. Jurkat, K-562, RAW 264.7 and THP-1), GenomONE-GX EX demonstrates higher transfection performance compared to representative lipofection reagent.

Features of GenomONE-GX EX

  • A novel gene delivery vector composed of a lipid-like substance and HVJ-E.
  • GenomONE-GX EX 's Enhancer suppresses innate immune responses by plasmid DNA and improves exogenous gene expression.
  • Exogenous gene expression is enhanced by GenomONE-GX EX using a combination of KALA peptides.

Mechanism of Enhancer. KALA peptide-mediated endosomal escape.

To protect themselves from exogenous factors such as viruses, cells have an intracellular defense system that recognizes exogenous DNA. In cells with transgene expression intrinsically suppressed by innate immune signaling, GenomONE-GX EX 's Enhancer can be expected to increase transgene expression levels, as it inhibits innate immune signaling in response to the recognition of exogenous DNA. KALA peptides are able to destabilize the endosomal membrane and enhance the transfection efficiency of non-viral gene delivery vectors.

TurboGFP expression

Various cell lines were transfected with a reporter plasmid encoding TurboGFP under a CAG promoter using either GenomONE-GX EX or Product L (a competitor) following the manufacturer’s instructions. One day or two days after transfection, TurboGFP expression was detected by fluorescence microscopy.

KALA peptide-mediated enhancement of transgene expression

Two days after transfection, TurboGFP expression was detected by fluorescence microscopy. GenomONE-GX EX with the addition of KALA peptide exhibited higher transfection efficiency than that of Product L (a competitor). KALA peptide also upregulated transgene expression in HeLa S3, Hep G2, Hs68, HuH-7, NIH/3T3, U-937, CHO-K1, L929, and P3X63Ag8.653 cells.

※KALA peptide is not included in the GenomONE-GX EX kit. Please prepare the KALA peptide solution in advance.

Luciferase expression

Various cell lines were transfected with a reporter plasmid encoding luciferase under a CAG promoter using either GenomONE-GX or Product L (a competitor) following manufacturer instructions. One day after transfection, luciferase expression was measured.

EGFP mRNA transfection using GenomONE-GX EX with the addition of KALA peptide

Two days after transfection of EGFP mRNA (L-7201, TriLink Biotechnologies) or pCAG-TurboGFP using GenomONE-GX EX with the addition of KALA peptide, the expression of green fluorescent protein was detected via fluorescence microscopic analysis. In a broad range of cell types, mRNA transfection showed high transfection efficiency with low cytotoxicity.
