A microfluidic invasion assay for glioma-initiating cells in three-dimensional culture

Abstract

This paper presents a microfluidic three-dimensional (3D) platform to investigate behaviors of glioma-initiating cells (GIC) cocultured with human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVEC). In this platform, these cells were cultured in microenvironments similar to in vivo. Especially, our experiments have been performed with GIC established by gene transfection [1], which is different from conventional tumor cell lines. Our results demonstrate that biochemical factors secreted by HUVEC attracts glioma invasion.
