Abstract: Cells are the structural and functional units of all unicellular and multicellular organisms and the process of cell proliferation plays an important role in the development of the whole organism and maintenance of adult tissue homoeostasis. In addition, abnormal cell proliferation is also associated with various human diseases such as cancer. Therefore, cell proliferation assays become crucial to scrutinize the rate of cell proliferation.Summary: The MTT assay is widely used in cell biology for the study of growth factors, cytokines, nutrients, and for the screening of cytotoxic or chemotherapeutic agents. Since the number of assay steps has been minimized as much as possible, MTT assay is easy to set up and convenient. Another great advantage is that this assay yields a relatively low background. Thus, MTT assay is of high sensitivity and accuracy for the quantification of cell proliferation.References: abuse »
