Tryptophan as the fingerprint for distinguishing agressiveness among cancer cell lines using native fluorescence spectroscopy


Tryptophan is used as the key native marker in cells to determine the level of aggressiveness of cancer cell lines using the native fluorescence spectroscopy. A ratio r of the fluorescence from tryptophan at 340 nm to that from the nadh at 440-460 nm is demonstrated to be associated with aggressiveness of the cancer cells.
