Ed by the current ones, highlight a major role for galectin-1 in GBM invasiveness. The characteristic malignant phenotype of glioblastoma extends beyond aggressive invasion. This tumor develops resistance to chemo- and radio-therapy, it promotes neoangiogenesis, and it seems to benefit from immune privilege. Interestingly, galectin-1 may play a role in promoting each of these phenotypes. While gal

Assays of GBM cells stably transfected to over-express galectin-1, perfectly fit in with the previous studies mentioned above and highlight the importance of galectin-1 in the biologically aggressive behavior of experimental GBMs. While there was no enhancement of proliferation or change inattachment to fibronectin, galectin-1 upregulation induced more rapid two-dimensional migration and enhanced

On began the day after transfection. When enough GFP-expressing cells were identified, single cell suspensions were sorted under sterile conditions using the GFP filters (488/530 nm excitation/emission) on a FACS Vantage Sorter (Beckton Dickinson Immunocytometry Systems, San Jose, CA). Cells were collected in 96-well plates at a setting of 2 cells / well, after attempts to collect 1 cell per well
