Effects of Garlic Oil on the Migration of Neutrophil-Like Cell Studied by Using a Chemotactic Gradient Labchip

Figure 4

The average values of (a) migration speed, (b) CI, (c) MI, and (d) ECI of fourteen groups of neutrophil-like cell migration under a fixed flow rate of 1.5  πœ‡ L/min with an IL-8 chemoattractant gradient of 0–6.25 nM. The first four groups in each figure were the control groups for comparison. Namely, a group of CB-treated cells served as the negative control group. Two groups of nocodazole-treated cells with two different concentrations of nocodazole served as the positive control groups. And a group of cells without any treatment served as a control group. On the other hand, the following ten groups in each figure were the test groups. Each test group of cells was GO-treated with a variant GO solution concentration, ranging from 1  πœ‡ g/mL to 10  πœ‡ g/mL. Data are given in the form of mean Β± S.D. # : Significant difference between the control group and the CB- or nocodazole-treated group ( 𝑃 < . 0 5 ) . a, b, c, d mean that the test groups not sharing the same superscript letter are significantly different ( 𝑃 < . 0 5 ) .
