3D Cell Culture- what is it and do we really need it ?
Traditional cell culture on plastic dishes or in flasks, rarely recapitulates the conditions cells experience in vivo. Over the past 20 years, many researchers looked for ways to culture cells in a more physiologically relevant manner. It is important to note that there is no silver bullet, each cell type needs a different environment and may need specific methods to study them. Content in this scoop aims to explain what real 3D culture really is and how it can be best applied to individual research needs.

 White paper: Incorporating the Extracellular Matrix: New Opportunities in Cancer Research

AMSBIO's insight:

Learn about the ECM proteins most relevant to cancer research. Self-organization models are described, with particular focus on the use of reconstituted basement membrane to study epithelial behavior. The broader application of ECM substrates is also explored in studying motility, in the context of adhesion, migration and invasion assays. Additional use of ECM products in vivo is discussed as a method to enhance the use of animal models.
