Invasion abilities of HTR-8/SVneo cells exposed to siPTTG1.
(A) Images and numbers of invaded HTR-8/SVneo cells after siPTTG1 treatment (original magnification, ×100; scale bar = 80 μm). (B) Expression and densities of MMP-9 and MMP-2 in HTR-8/SVneo cells analyzed by zymography. (C) Expression of MMP-9 and MMP-2 mRNA in HTR-8/SVneo cells analyzed by qRT-PCR. (D) Expression and densities of MMP-9 and MMP-2 in HTR-8/SVneo cells after siPTTG1 treatment analyzed by western blot. Values are means ± standard errors. *p < 0.05 and **p < 0.001. β-actin or GAPDH was used as a loading control.
