we've never tried to transfect this cell line, but we've had good luck
with using the BTX protocol service.  call them up and tell them that
you're looking for a protocol for this cell line.  they do lit searches
for people using BTX electroporators and then get permission to put their
protocols in their database.  then when you call, if they have a protocol
for your cell line (or one like it) they'll fax it too you.

good luck,
