Summary: In this work the authors developed a new transfection strategy that takes advantage of the fact that many cell lines endogenously express α-1,3-galactosyltransferase (α-Gal), the target of rIB4-SAP (Cat. #IT-10). After transfection low expressing or non-transfected cells are killed by an application of rIB4-SAP at 80 μg/ml for 2 hours. The surviving cells eventually express α-Gal again, and require no selective agent to maintain expression of the gene of interest. These transfected cells can be transfected again using the same method.
