Increased BiP and PDI expression after adenoviral transduction does not affect cell viability.
A) hIAPP-INS1E cells were transduced with different doses (MOI) for 24 hours. Representative Western blotting shows BiP protein levels at indicated doses. B) GFP expression after adenoviral (Ad-PDI/GFP) transduction in hIAPP-INS1E cells for 24 hours. Note an increase in GFP expression that correlates with an increase in MOI. C) Live/death viability assay showing no cell death in hIAPP-INS1E cells transduced for 24 hours with Ad-BiP. Western blotting and images in B and C are representative from 3 independent experiments.
