    Authors:  Isabelle Ernens, Bénédicte Lenoir, Yvan Devaux and Daniel R. Wagner, date: 10/20/2015, view: 5833, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Angiogenesis is a multifactorial event which requires the migration, proliferation, differentiation and structure rearrangement of endothelial cells. This angiogenic process has been commonly studied using in vitro assays such as Boyden chamber assay, wound healing assay and tube formation assay. These assays mainly use monolayers of ...

    Authors:  Hong Lok Lung and Maria Li Lung, date: 09/20/2012, view: 35847, Q&A: 4
    [Abstract] The matrigel plug angiogenesis assay is a simple in vivo technique to detect the newly formed blood vessels in the transplanted gel plugs in nude mice. The matrigel matrix is derived from the engelbroth-holm-swarm (EHS) mouse sarcoma, and its composition is comparable to the basement membrane proteins. The matrigel can induce ...
