Authors: F. Simões et al.

Journal: Eur J Physiol (2017)

Institution: Universität Regensburg

Research Areas: Cystic fibrosis

Cell Lines: HEK293, HeLa, and CFBE cells (Human embryonic kidney cells (HEK293), human cervical cancer ( HeLa), and cystic fibrosis bronchial epithelial (CFBE) cells)

Summary: Mechanism in cystic fibrosis; role of induced cell death by reactive oxygen species (ROS) was investigated. Cell volume measurements using HoloMonitor was used to assess cell shrinkage during cell death.

Keywords: HoloMonitor, Cell morphology, CFTR
