Dear flowers,

I have been trying to optimize the transfection of U937 cells with GFP
(Green Fluorescent Protein).
Currently, I transfect them using FuGENE6 with  DNA:Lipid ratio of
1:3-1:5 and monitor the transfection efficiency, using flowcytometry
(FL1), using nontransfected cells as control.

I have not observed any significant increase in FL1 in transfected cells
so far.

If you know a good transfection method on U937 cells, please let me
