Isolation of Cancer Epithelial Cells from Mouse Mammary Tumors
Authors:  Sara Johnson, Hexin Chen and Pang-Kuo Lo, date: 02/05/2013, view: 8222, Q&A: 0
The isolation of cancer epithelial cells from mouse mammary tumor is accomplished by digestion of the solid tumor. Red blood cells and other contaminates are removed using several washing techniques such that primary epithelial cells can further ...
In vitro Tumorsphere Formation Assays
Authors:  Sara Johnson, Hexin Chen and Pang-Kuo Lo, date: 02/05/2013, view: 30928, Q&A: 3
A tumorsphere is a solid, spherical formation developed from the proliferation of one cancer stem/progenitor cell. These tumorspheres (Figure 1a) are easily distinguishable from single or aggregated cells (Figure 1b) as the cells appear to become ...

Generation of Chemically Induced Liver Progenitors (CLiPs) from Rat Adult Hepatocytes
Authors:  Takeshi Katsuda, Kazunori Hosaka and Takahiro Ochiya, date: 01/20/2018, view: 364, Q&A: 0
Primary mature hepatocytes (MHs) or their progenitor cells are candidate cell sources for cell transplantation therapy in severe liver diseases. However, stable culture of these cells or generation of equivalent cells from pluripotent stem cells has ...
