Invasion assay in MKN45/PAR1. Treatment of MKN45/PAR1 with 15 nM α-thrombin or 30 μM TFLLR-NH2 resulted in significant enhancement (5 or 6 fold increment relative to untreated control) of its invasion potential. But treatment of MKN45/mock with same conditions of α-thrombin or TFLLR-NH2 resulted in no significant enhancement. The inhibitory effect of the SCH79797 was clearly observed at 35 and 70 nM. There was the maximum inhibitory effect on the invasion ability of MKN45/PAR1 at 150 nM SCH79797. Basal invading activity was expressed as an absorbance of 560 nm for MKN45/mock cells which were unexposed to α-thrombin. (Date were expressed as mean values ± SD from triplicate experiments.)
