      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, Colorimetric 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. Precision pipettes: sufficient for aliquoting cells.
      2. Harvesting buffer: EDTA or trypsin based cell detachment buffer, or other cell detachment formulations as optimized by individual investigators. Millipore’s ready-to-use non-mammalian detachment solution, Accutase™ (Cat. No. SCR005) can also be used.
      3. Endothelial cells (for example: HUVEC cells).
      4. Endothelium cell culture medium appropriate for subject cells, such as EGM-2 (Endothelial cell growth media-2)
      5. Quenching Medium: serum-free medium, such as DMEM, MEM etc containing 5% BSA. Must contain divalent cations (Mg 2+, Ca2+) sufficient for quenching EDTA in harvesting buffer.
      6. Sterile PBS or HBSS to wash cells.
      7. Distilled water
      8. (Optional) Chemoattractant or pharmacological agent added to culture medium.
      9. Low speed centrifuge and tubes for cell harvesting.
      10. CO2 incubator appropriate for subject cells.
      11. Hemocytometer or other means of counting cells.
      12. Trypan blue or equivalent viability stain.
      13. Microplate reader (540-570 nm detection) or spectrophotometer.
      14. Sterile cell culture hood
      15. (Optional) Graduated ocular (calibrated), or automated method for counting stained cells on a membrane.
      16. Shaker

      Applications
      ApplicationThis QCM 3 μm Endothelial Cell Migration Assay – Fibronectin, Colorimetric 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, Colorimetric 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, Colorimetric assay is intended for research use only; not for diagnostic applications.
      Each kit provides sufficient materials for the evaluation of 12 samples.
