Melanoma Stem Cell Sphere Formation Assay
Authors:  Alessandra Tuccitto, Valeria Beretta, Francesca Rini, Chiara Castelli and Michela Perego, date: 04/20/2017, view: 3542, Q&A: 0
Self-renewal is the ability of cells to replicate themselves at every cell cycle. Throughout self-renewal in normal tissue homeostasis, stem cell number is maintained constant throughout life. Cancer stem cells (CSCs) share this ability with normal ...

Fluorescent Labeling of Rat-tail Collagen for 3D Fluorescence Imaging
Author:  Andrew D. D Doyle, date: 07/05/2018, view: 724, Q&A: 0
Rat tail collagen solutions have been used as polymerizable in vitro three-dimensional (3D) extracellular matrix (ECM) gels for single and collective cell migration assays as well as spheroid formation. These 3D hydrogels are a relatively ...

An Image-based Assay for High-throughput Analysis of Cell Proliferation and Cell Death of Adherent Cells
Authors:  Paula Szalai and Nikolai Engedal, date: 05/05/2018, view: 1200, Q&A: 0
In this protocol, we describe a method to monitor cell proliferation and death by live-cell imaging of propidium iodide (PI)-stained adherent mammalian cells. PI is widely used to assess cell death. However, it is usually used in end-point assays. ...
