Table 3 Summary of description of each assay and corresponding results

From: Collective cell migration of smooth muscle and endothelial cells: impact of injury versus non-injury stimuli

Assay Injury? Wound shape Initial wound size Highest migration Lowest migration
Scrape Wound Yes Rectangle d = 2.5 mm SMC on gelatin HUVEC on polystyrene
Out-Growth No Circle d = 4 mm HUVEC on gelatin HUVEC on polystyrene
In-Growth No Circle d = 2 mm HUVEC on gelatin HUVEC on polystyrene
  1. Description categories include whether the assay creates injury, what shape of wound it creates, and the size of the wound. Best overall migration rates after 48 h are also displayed according to cell type and surface substrate
