GenMute™ siRNA Transfection Reagent for RAW 264.7 Cell is pre-optimized for transfecting siRNA to RAW 264.7 cells.RAW 264.7 cells are a macrophage-like, Abelson leukemia virus transformed cell line derived from BALB/c mice. RAW 264.7 cell slide is often used for immunocytochemical analysis of protein and protein-protein interaction. Procedures for immunohistochemistry can be directly applied.
