High-content tumor cell migration assays in 3-dimensional (3D) extracellular matrix are a powerful tool for modeling and understanding the biology of this critical step in the process of metastasis. Currently available methods offer very limited throughput and are not amenable to studies of comparative pharmacology or small-scale screening. The authors(More)
Multi-well assays based on the Boyden chamber have enabled highly parallel studies of chemotaxis-the directional migration of cells in response to molecular gradients-while direct-viewing approaches have allowed more detailed questions to be asked at low throughput. Boyden-based plates provide a count of cells that pass through a membrane, but no(More)
In this article we describe the validation of a beta-lactamase reporter assay for high-throughput interrogation of the mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) signaling pathway initiated by multiple receptors. Activation of cell surface receptors, such as epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and cMET, upon ligand binding, leads to the activation of the(More)
