Dear netters,

I would like to ask if any of you have a good protocol for tranfecting DNA
into cultured adipocytes.  I work with 3T3-L1 cells and have tried both
calcium phosphate method and electroporation (0.4cm cuvette, 650V, 25uF);
however, both methods didn't give good transfection efficiency.  

Thanks in advance.
