Biological Activity for DC-Cholesterol hydrochloride

DC-Cholesterol hydrochloride is a cationic cholesterol derivative for use as a liposomal transfection reagent. Combines with the 'helper lipid' DOPE (Cat. No. 7175) after sonication or microfluidization to form unilamellar liposomes. Can be used in vitro and in vivo for transfer of nucleic acids, protein complexes, or other small molecule complexes into tissues, tumors and cells.
