Figure 6: FoxM1 promotes invasion and upregulation of MMP2 and MMP9 in GDF15-overexpressing breast cancer cells.(A) BT474 stable empty vector control clone (pCMV) and GDF15 stable clone 5 (C5) were transfected with 100 nM control siRNA (siCtrl) or FoxM1 siRNA (siFoxM1) for 48 hours, and then plated in serum-free media in Matrigel-coated Boyden chambers. After 24 hours, cells were fixed and stained. Representative photos of invading cells are shown at 20× magnification. The total number of invading cells was counted in 10 random fields; the average number of invading cells is shown for triplicate cultures per cell line; student’s t-test, **p < 0.005.
