Stochastic variations of migration speed between cells in clonal populations

3 octubre 2014

Microfluidic tools for precision measurements of cell migration speed reveal that migratory speed of individual cells changes stochastically from parent cells to their descendants, while the average speed of the cell population remains constant through successive generations. This finding is important in the context of cancer treatment, where treatments are sought to slow down the invasion of cancer cells.
