ANT2 shRNA suppresses invasiveness and migration of SK-BR3 cells in vitro. (A) To evaluate the inhibitory effect of ANT2 shRNA on invasion and migration of SK-BR3 cells, cells were transfected with scramble shRNA or ANT2 shRNA and cultured for 24 hours. Matrigel invasion assays were performed using modified Boyden chambers with polycarbonate Nucleopore membranes. Following incubation for 18 hours at 37°C, noninvaded cells on the upper surface of the filter were wiped out with a cotton swab, and the invaded cells on the lower surface of the filter were fixed and stained with Diff-Quick kit. (B) Transwell migration assays were performed using the same procedure used for performance of the invasion assay, except that the underside of filters was coated with type I collagen. Data were analyzed using the Student's t test. P < 0.005 was considered statistically significant.
