Analysis of Proliferation Dynamics in Primary and Immortalized Human Cells
9 May 2013
Cell proliferation and the characterization of agents that affect proliferation dynamics are extremely important areas of research. In this scientific poster a variety of human cell types and fluorescent reporters were used to characterize cell cycle profiles and their sensitivity to antimitotic agents, compounds commonly used to treat cancer, were assessed. Drug-induced cell cycle arrest was visualized in primary and immortalized cells by fluorescently labelling microtubules and actin filaments.
