  U87MG U251MG LNT-229 T98G A172
migration 94.3 ± 7.8 80.7 ± 31.2 98.4 ± 18.6 100.8 ± 5.7 95.6 ± 10.0
invasiveness 121.4 ± 17.0 104.0 ± 18.6 95.3 ± 14.3 111.4 ± 21.8 108.4 ± 9.2
  1. U87MG, U251MG, LNT-229, T98G or A172 cells were exposed to 3-hydroxybutyrate (5 mM) and migration or invasiveness were assessed. Data are expressed as mean percentages relative to control cultures and standard error of the mean.
