Cell proliferation is broadly defined as a process leading to an increase of cell number, essentially depending on a balance between cell cycle progression/cell division, cell death, and cellular senescence. Deregulation of cell proliferation is a key feature of cancer cells, making assessment of proliferation a central methodological issue in cancer research. Especially in Ewing sarcoma (EwS) that exhibit a high proliferative capacity, experimental assessment of proliferation in preclinical research plays an important role. Among the variety of applicable methods, trypan blue exclusion is described here as a robust, easy-to-perform, and cost-effective method to assess cell proliferation in an experimental setting.
