      Introduction
      Angiogenesis is a fundamental process involving the growth of new blood vessels from pre-existing vessels. It is important in development and wound healing, as well as pathologic diseases such as diabetic retinopathy and cancer. During angiogenesis, endothelial cells need to move out of existing vessels, migrate into new areas, proliferate and assemble into new capillaries. The migration of endothelial cells is regulated by many angiogenic factors and anti-angiogenic factors. It is critical for researchers to understand the mechanisms of endothelial cell migration.

      Millipore's 3 μm QCM™ Endothelial Cell Migration Assay – Fibronectin, Fluorometric provides a quick and efficient system to study the ability of compounds to induce or inhibit endothelial cell migration. This assay also allows screening of pharmacological agents, evaluation of integrins or other adhesion receptors responsible for endothelial cell migration, analysis of gene function in transfected cells, and determination of ECM protein involvement in cell movement.

      This versatile assay permits counting of individual migratory cells, and, more importantly, allows quantitative analysis by optical density (OD) using a standard microplate reader. This convenient assay allows large scale screening and quantitative comparison of multiple samples and includes individual migration controls for each sample.
      Materials Required but Not Delivered1. Endothelial cells (for example: HUVEC cells), and cell culture medium (for example: EGM-2).
      2. Serum-free medium, such as serum-free EGM-2 containing 0.5% BSA.
      3. Sterile PBS or HBSS to wash cells.
      4. Distilled water
      5. (Optional) Chemoattractant or pharmacological agent for addition to culture medium.
      6. Low speed centrifuge and tubes for cell harvesting
      7. CO2 incubator appropriate for subject cells
      8. Hemocytometer or other means of counting cells.
      9. Trypan blue or equivalent viability stain
      10. Fluorescence plate reader.

      Applications
      ApplicationThis QCM 3 μm Endothelial Cell Migration Assay – Fibronectin, Fluorometric is ideal for the study of endothelial cell migration in response to an angiogenic stimulus.
      Application NotesThe Millipore QCM™ 3 μm Endothelial Cell Migration Assay – Fibronectin, Fluorometric is ideal for the study of endothelial cell migration in response to an angiogenic stimulus. The quantitative nature of this assay is especially useful for large scale screening of pharmacologic agents. BSA-coated control chambers provide an appropriate migration control. The 3 μm pore size in this assay is optimal for endothelial cells such as HUVEC, but not sufficient for fibroblast migration. The Millipore QCM™ 3 μm Endothelial Cell Migration Assay – Fibronectin, Fluorometric assay is intended for research use only; not for diagnostic applications.
      Each kit provides sufficient materials for the evaluation of 12 samples.
