Institution: Tianjin Key Laboratory of Neurotrauma Repair

Research Areas: Cancer Research

Cell Lines: U87MG cells (Human glioblastoma)

Summary: The present study revealed that ouabain intervention inhibited U‑87MG cell viability and cell motility in a dose‑dependent manner, suggesting that ouabain promoted the apoptosis of U87‑MG cells. HoloMonitor was used to analyze cell motility, cell count and to study the 3D cell structure.
