Figure 9

The mRNA expression of NF-κB target genes by quantitative RT-PCR. We selected 10 target genes of NF-κB that are concerned with cell growth and invasion. Most of the mRNA expression were increased after 15 nM α-thrombin stimulation. The mRNA expression levels of TN-C, Bcl-2, cIAP1 and EGFR reached more than 100 times the relative levels of the control values. Especially, TN-C mRNA expression level was increased. The kinetics of mRNA expression following α-thrombin stimulation in MKN45/PAR1 are different depending upon type of genes tested. The bar height indicates the calculated fold activation values for each time after stimulation with 15 nM α-thrombin. It was based on the condition of no α-thrombin stimulation. (Date were expressed as mean values ± SD from triplicate experiments.)
