Phycocyanin inhibits cell migration in MDA MB 231 cells. a Percentage of cell migration into the wound scratch with and without treatment with PC was quantified and compared against that of controls. Representative images of wound healing at 0 and 24 h following scratch induction and PC treatment. b Assessment of cellular aggregation by hanging drop aggregation assay showed increased cell-cell adhesion (>20 aggregates) in PC treated MDA MB 231 cells (arrows indicate >20 aggregates). (***P < 0.0001 compared with untreated controls) (c) Confocal scanning microscopy analysis for phalloidin in MDA MB 231 cells showed microfilament network collapse after PC treatment
