Methods for Delivering DNA to Intracellular Receptors

We describe here optimized procedures for both electroporation and chemical transfection, including the centrifugation of chemical transfection reagent onto cells, which greatly increases the speed and strength of responses. Appropriate choice of DNA and use of these methods allow study of either the cytosolic DNA responses in isolation or the simultaneous stimulation of cytosolic receptors and the CpG DNA receptor toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) in the endosomes.
