Ovarian cancer cell invasion. OVCAR-3 and SKOV-3 cells were grown to confluence in complete media. A wound was made using 96 well WoundMaker and then overlaid to form a 3D matrix-gel. Invasion assay was preformed with OVCAR-3 and SKOV-3 cells in complete media. Cells were imaged with IncuCyte™ (Essen BioSciences, USA) every three hours for 24 h. (see Methods). (A) Representative images of OVCAR-3 (A1-A4) and SKOV-3 (A5-A8) cell invasion. A1 and A5: phase contrast micrograph image immediately after wounding; A2 and A6: graphical representation showing the calculation of initial wound width; A3 and A7: cells images show 24 hours later; A4 and A8: graphical representation of cell invasion at 24 hours of the experiment. The grey region denotes the area of the initial wound covered by advancing cells. (B) The time course of OVCAR-3 and SKOV-3 invasion. (C) Area under curves analysis from B. Data represented as mean ± SEM (n = 6). In C, *P < 0.001 versus SKOV-3.
