1. Introduction: Cell proliferation is an key method to provide the purpose of studying important biological factors such as bioassays, toxicological tests and other carcinogenic analysis. For these analysis growth factor, serum batch testing, anti-cancer drug screening and determination of cell number is required. Reference: Animal cell culture and technology. Michael Butler.,1996, Published by Oxford University Press. Materials and Methods: Cell proliferation is a important method to study many biological activities. However for the cell proliferation, passaging is required mode to get the desired result. The two methods were used in the experiment to determine the cell proliferation is described below. Materials used for cell culture: 1) Flask. 2) Centrifuge. 3) Sterile Multi and pasture pipettes. 4) Haemocytometer. 5) Gas incubator. 6) Two 96 well plates. 7) Cell culture. Cell culture Methods: The passaging of cells in which the subculture should be removed from the monolayer culture substratum by using enzyme trypsin (0.05% or EDTA (0.02%). The passage cells should be transfer into the 60 wells in the centre of the 96 well plates by maintaining a density of 0.25% × 105 cells/well (200µl of 1.25×105 cells/ml in the cell suspension). Fill up the wells with 200µl of phosphate buffered saline (PBS). Allow them to settle for a night in gas incubator. Put the cell incubations in two 96 well plates. Next cells was treated with medium containing 0,1,5,10 and 20% v/v serum which is in 12 wells. Medium should be dilated containing serum and required 3ml of each in treatment per 96 well plates ( 200µl/well). The cell should be washed 3 times with PBS by using multichannel pipette and media containing different serum should be added. The two different plates where as one should be used for crystal violet uptake and another for MTT assay it was putted for 48 hours incubation. 1 8) Trypsin/EDTA (TE). 9) Dulbecco's modification of Eagle's medium (DMEM). 10) Phosphate Buffer saline (PBS).

The plates were then washed three times with distilled water and the stained cell layer was solubilised in 50µl glacial acetic acid.fastpdf. The absorbance of the wells were later read using plate reader at 540nm. Gas incubator. Cells were then fixed with 200µl methanol for 15 minutes. The cell cultures from the 60 central wells of the 96 well plate incubated earlier were removed and the wells were washed 3 times with PBS using Pasteur pipette. -. 5 different concentrations were prepared in the following composition and was incorporated into those 60 central wells of the plate (12 wells Per treatment) and was incubated for 48 hours. A graph was plotted using the resulted mean. Methanol. Foetal calf serum (FCS).A) Staining with Crystal Violet: This method is based on the principle of estimating cell proliferation by calculating the absorbance after staining the culture cells with crystal violet which is taken up by the viable cells in medium with different concentration.com -- After 48 hours incubation cell cultures from the 60 central well of the 96 wells plates were removed and the wells were washed with 200µl PBS. Phosphate Buffered Saline (PBS). The absorbance of the cells of different concentration were taken and their mean was calculated. Pasture and multichannel Pipette. Medium with serum.

The absorbance of the Neutral Red stained cells monitored at 550 nm is indicative of the cell number. Proliferation may therefore be monitored with almarblue using a standard spectrophotometer or by spectroflurometer.com -- Immunocytochemistry: 1) Cell Differiention of K562 cells to megakaryocytes: The K562 ( Chronic myelogenous leukemia cell line) has been comprehensively used in the studies of cell differentiation. Reference: http://www.biosource.fastpdf.a) almarBlueTM Reduction: A new method for measuring cell proliferation has in recent times become accessible which uses almarBlue TM. was used in the experiment to differiention of K562 cells to megakaryocytes. Proliferation measurements with almarBlueTM may be made of eigther spectromhotometrically by monitoring the absorption of almarBlueTM supplimented cell culture media at two wavelengths. almarBlueTM monitors the dropping environment of the proliferating cells. Phorbol Myristate acetate (PMA). and heat stable antigen are found to produce similar numbers of viable cells and antigen expressing cells as non-almarBlueTM exposed cells. The continuous monitoring of cells in culture is therefore permitted. stable in culture medium and is non-toxic. AlmaeBlueTM is soluble. Cells grown in the presence of almarBlueTM and subsequently analysed by flow cytomeytry for CD44.Converted from Word to PDF for free by Fast PDF -. almarBlueTM does not alter the viability of cells cultured for various times as monitored by Trypan Blue exclusion. or alternatively. On the other hand almarBlueTM does not interfere with the ability of hybridomas to secrete antibody.www. the cells under study can be returned to culture or used for other purposes including histological studies. Results obtained by this method in the measurement of cells proliferation in response to the cytokines IL-2 and IL-6 compare favourably with results obtained by measuring 3H-thymidine incorporation . CD45RB.pdf -. Spectrophotometric microtitric well plate reader and spectroflurometric microtiter well plate reader could be used.com/content/literatureContent/PDFs/alamarbluebooklet. The differiention process was monitored by the expression of platelet cell marker and also vitronectin receptor-CD61. CD4. The cells under study may be in suspension or adherent. Because almarBlueTM is non-toxic. As with tetrazolium salts. Specifically. Proliferation assays are performed by culturing cells in micrititer well plates or trays followed by neutral Red staining. proliferation measurement with almarblue may be made flurometrically. b) Neutral Red uptake method: The quantitation of Neutral Red also has utility in measuring cell proliferation. 5 . which can also function as a tumour promoter.
