I did my homework and could not find a reference with a protocol for
efficient transient transfection of primary human fibroblasts.  So, I
tried CaPO4 and the lipofection optomization kit from invitrogen; only a
few rare positived in the dish.  We have an electroporator (I posted good
protocol for COS-7 cells a few weeks back), but I'd rather hear others'
experiences before trying to establish conditions myself.
