Mean speed of of glioma cells transiently transfected with vector (control)

Value 0.9 μm/min
Organism Mammalian tissue culture cell
Reference Prag S et al., NCAM regulates cell motility. J Cell Sci. 2002 Jan 15 115(Pt 2):283-92. p.286 fig.1ePubMed ID11839780
Method "Time-lapse video recording of live cells was performed in sealed dishes on a thermostatically controlled and motorized stage (Lincam Scientific Instruments) mounted on a Diaphot 300 inverted microscope equipped with phase-contrast optics (Nikon) using a black and white CCD video camera (Burle)." Value extracted visually from fig.1e
Comments "To quantify the motile behaviour, [investigators] measured cell dispersion and calculated the rate of diffusion, R (Fig. 1C), the root mean square speed, S (Fig. 1D) and the mean cell speed, St (Fig. 1E) (for definitions, see section of methods)."
