Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

In this chapter we will describe the use of the tubular network assay as a useful tool in the evaluation of cancer neoangiogenesis (as reported by Arnaoutova et al. [Angiogenesis 12:267–274, 2009]). Angiogenesis is involved not only in pathological conditions including cancer biology and non-neoplastic diseases, but also many biological processes including reproduction, development and repair. A detailed working protocol applicable to the study of any type of endothelial cells is provided below and in addition, details on data interpretation analysis and troubleshooting.
