Table 1 The absorbance of ECs under different culture conditions of IL-6 and/or sIL-6R

From: Higher proliferation of peritumoral endothelial cells to IL-6/sIL-6R than tumoral endothelial cells in hepatocellular carcinoma

  1. acell proliferation was evaluated by CCK-8 assay and results were expressed as the absorbance of each well which was read at 490 nm with a microplate reader (Nexcelom, Lawrence, MA). Culture medium (EBM-2 medium) without cells was used as blank control. All experiments were performed in triplicate
  2. Student t test was conducted between different groups with stimulation of (IL-6 and /or sIL-6R) and control group
  3. * P < 0.05; *** P < 0.001
