Alteration of the glycocalyx of two blood-brain barrier mimicking cell lines is inducible by glioma conditioned media.


Recent studies showed that glioma conditioned medium is able to induce blood-brain barrier properties in in vitro models. In this regard, it was investigated whether glioma conditioned medium can also influence the lectin-binding capacity of blood-brain barrier in vitro models. For the presented study cell lines PBMEC/C1-2 and ECV304 were chosen because it… (More)
