  • Cell Migration in Microfluidic Devices: Invadosomes Formation in Confined Environments. [Review]
    Adv Exp Med Biol 2019; 1146:79-103Chi PY, Spuul P, … Taloni A
  • The last 20 years have seen the blooming of microfluidics technologies applied to biological sciences. Microfluidics provides effective tools for biological analysis, allowing the experimentalists to extend their playground to single cells and single molecules, with high throughput and resolution which were inconceivable few decades ago. In particular, microfluidic devices are profoundly changing…
  • Use Microfluidic Chips to Study the Phototaxis of Lung Cancer Cells. [Journal Article]
    Int J Mol Sci 2019; 20(18)Lin FY, Lin JY, … Sun YS
  • Cell migration is an important process involved in wound healing, tissue development, and so on. Many studies have been conducted to explore how certain chemicals and electric fields induce cell movements in specific directions, which are phenomena termed chemotaxis and electrotaxis, respectively. However, phototaxis, the directional migration of cells or organisms toward or away from light, is r…
  • Stem cell passage affects directional migration of stem cells in electrotaxis. [Journal Article]
    Stem Cell Res 2019; 38:101475Hong SH, Lee MH, … Park JC
  • Stem cells can differentiate into various body tissues and organs and thus are considered as promising tools for cell therapy and tissue engineering. Early passage stem cells have high differentiation ability compared to late passage stem cells. Thus, it is important to use early passage stem cells in cell therapy. Here, we investigated whether cell migration could be used to compare young and se…
  • Doxycycline inhibits electric field-induced migration of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) cells. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep 2019; 9(1):8094Chang HF, Cheng HT, … Cheng JY
  • Adenocarcinoma, large cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma are the most commonly diagnosed subtypes of non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC). Numerous lung cancer cell types have exhibited electrotaxis under direct current electric fields (dcEF). Physiological electric fields (EF) play key roles in cancer cell migration. In this study, we investigated electrotaxis of NSCLC cells, including hu…
  • Expression of integrins to control migration direction of electrotaxis. [Journal Article]
    FASEB J 2019; 33(8):9131-9141Zhu K, Takada Y, … Zhao M
  • Proper control of cell migration is critically important in many biologic processes, such as wound healing, immune surveillance, and development. Much progress has been made in the initiation of cell migration; however, little is known about termination and sometimes directional reversal. During active cell migration, as in wound healing, development, and immune surveillance, the integrin express…
  • DC Electric Fields Induce Perpendicular Alignment and Enhanced Migration in Schwann Cell Cultures. [Journal Article]
    Ann Biomed Eng 2019; 47(7):1584-1595Bunn SJ, Lai A, Li J
  • Schwann cells (SCs) are PNS glia that play numerous support functions including myelination of axons. After PNS injury, SCs facilitate regeneration by phagocytosing cellular debris and providing physical and biochemical cues to guide axon growth. This reparative phenotype suggests SCs could be critical cellular targets for enhancing nerve regeneration. One method for altering cell morphology and …
