The medium collected from transfected cells was used as a source of Sema3 proteins for examining effects of mutant Sema3C (R745A), with the comparison to the wild-type Sema3C, on microcapillary formation by HUVEC cells in in vitro angiogenesis assays. For this purpose, HUVEC cells were suspended in media containing secreted Sema3A, Sema3F, Sema3C, and Sema3C (R745A) and seeded on a 96-well plate coated with Geltrex.
We further confirmed via HUVEC migration and angiogenesis assays that the secreted PDGF-BB protein possessed chemotactic activity and angiogenic activity.

Angiogenesis assays. We performed angiogenesis assays using the tube formation method (Arnaoutova and Kleinman 2010).
Existing models that have been used in the development of traditional cytotoxic drugs should be reevaluated and refined for these newer "molecularly targeted drugs" It remains critical to choose appropriate angiogenesis assays to evaluate the efficacy of novel drug compounds and to identify potential targets within the angiogenic disease to enable the proper translation of data from preclinical to the clinic testing.
