New Cell Migration Assay paper: Can Ionizing radiation induce motility in carcinoma cells?

Prof. Dr. Hendrik Ungefroren, University Hospital Schleswig-Holstein, Germany:

"In this study, we examined the effects of ionizing radiation (IR) on tumor cells from lung and pancreas as an in vitro correlate to radiotherapy of cancer patients. Using a xCELLigence DP real-time migration assay, which provided high-quality kinetic data, we were able to show that radiation treatment induces a strong increase in random cell motility that was mediated by IR-induced autocrine production of transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta.
