2. The medium is removed and replaced by 100μl OPTI MEM (Invitrogen) and subsequently the transfection mixture is added: 25μl OPTI MEM containing 0.025 to 0.25 Poly(dA:dT) + 25μl OPTI MEM containing 0.5μl Lipofectamine 2000 (Invitrogen) or alternative transfection agents.
3. Over night stimulation at 5% CO2 and 37°C.
4. Measurement of IFN-α/β in culture supernatants.
