    1. COS-I cells were seeded at a density of 2.5 x 105 cells per well in a 6-well tissue culture plate and transfected with plasmid DNA essentially as described above. After 48 h incubation, cells Were trypsinized and counted in a hemocytometer. Cells ( ~ 1 06) were washed twice with PBS and fixed with 0.4% paraformaldehyde in PBS followed by all washings and incubations with respective primary and secondary antibodies in presence of 0.1% Saponin. Antibody concentrations used were same as in indirect immunofluorescence assay. After the final wash, cells were resuspended in PBS and samples were run on an Elite ESP flow cytometer (Coulter Electronics, Hialeh, FL, USA) and data analyzed using WinMDI (version 2.8) software. Cells stained with just secondary antibody were used to account for the background fluorescence. Cells tranfected with VR 1020 vector and probed with primary antibody were used as negative control.
    2. Analysis of mammalian cells, transfected in vitro with the plasmid DNA, by flow cytometry
