 I don't know if it would work or not, but have you thought
of lipofection?  I've done transfections of cos cells with both
electroporation and lipofection (LipofectAce, Gibco/BRL) and have
gotten consistently better results with the latter.  Less cell 
death and better representation of the complex transfected pool 
of constructs.  If it works for getting ab's into the cells, 
it might be a better way to go.  Just a thought.

Positional cloning...it's not the kill, it's the thrill of the chase.
