VEGF induces angiogenesis in a zebrafish embryo glioma model established by transplantation of human glioma cells.

Abstract

Zebrafish (Danio rerio) is becoming an increasingly popular vertebrate cancer model. In this study, we established a xenotransplanted zebrafish embryo glioma model to further investigate the molecular mechanisms of tumor angiogenesis. We find that the glioma cell line U87 can survive, proliferate and induce additional… (More)
