      DescriptionIn Vitro Angiogenesis Assay Kit
      OverviewAngiogenesis is the process of generating new capillary blood vessels. It is a fundamental component of a number of normal (reproduction and wound healing) and pathological processes (diabetic retinopathy, rheumatoid arthritis, tumor growth and metastasis).

      The CHEMICON In Vitro Angiogenesis Assay Kit provides a convenient system for evaluation of tube formation by endothelial cells in a convenient 96-well format. When cultured on ECMatrix™, a solid gel of basement proteins prepared from the Engelbreth Holm-Swarm (EHS) mouse tumor, these endothelial cells rapidly align and form hollow tube-like structures. Tube formation is a multi-step process involving cell adhesion, migration, differentiation and growth.

      ECMatrix™ consists of laminin, collagen type IV, heparan sulfate proteoglycans, entactin and nidogen. It also contains various growth factors (TGF-beta, FGF) and proteolytic enzymes (plasminogen, tPA, MMPs) that occur normally in EHS tumors. It is optimized for maximal tube-formation.


      The CHEMICON In Vitro Angiogenesis Assay Kit represents a simple model of angiogenesis in which the induction or inhibition of tube formation by exogenous signals can be easily monitored. For assaying inhibitors or stimulators of tube formation, simply premix the endothelial cell suspension with different concentrations of the inhibitor or stimulator to be tested, before adding the cells to the top of the ECMatrixTM. The assay can be used to monitor the extent of tube assembly in various endothelial cells, e.g. human umbilical vein cells (HUVEC) or bovine capillary endothelial (BCE) cells.

      The CHEMICON In Vitro Angiogenesis Assay Kit is intended for research use only; not for diagnostic or therapeutic applications.
