The transwell assays demonstrated that McA-SYYCM cells passed through the basement membrane in less number than McA-nSYYCM cells, and McA-SYY cells were the lowest in number (A). The number of invading cells is expressed as mean ± SD (B). Based upon western blots, E-cadherin was upregulated, while N-cadherin, vimentin, and MMP-2 were downregulated in McA-SYYCM cells compared to McA-nSYYCM cells. MMP-9 levels were low in both McA-SYYCM and McA-nSYYCM cells, and were not statistically different (C).
