Invasion and proliferation data

Effects of transfection of non-cancerous human epithelial breast cells (MCF10A) with a gene suspected to lead to cancerous characteristics.

Data from Zunair Khokhar and Eusebio Pires, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology

Cell index is a measure of cell number, during proliferation or migration through a chamber of Matrigel to an electrode which detects cells.


Invasion through either 1 or 200 µg/ml protein Matrigel

Transformed cells (TR) migrate faster than non-transformed cells (UT) through 200 µg/ml Matrigel (UT 200, TR 200)



Transformed cells (TR) proliferate faster than non-transformed cells (UT)
