Platelet adhesion to a panel of ovarian cancer cell lines is heterogeneous under static conditions.
[A] Platelet adhesion to ovarian cancer cells was quantified based on the fluorescence detection of labelled platelets. Platelet adhesion to fibrinogen and BSA were used as ± controls [n = 8 + SEM, * = p<0.05 vs. BSA]. Fluorescence microscopy images of platelets adhering to A2780 [B] and 59M [C] cells under static conditions [representative of n = 3]. Ovarian cancer cells and platelets were stained for actin [green], platelets were stained specifically for CD42a [red/yellow].
