Fusion with hucMSCs induces morphological changes and enhanced growth of gastric cancer cells. a. The two gastric cancer cell lines showed epithelial morphology and hucMSCs with fibroblast-like shape. HGC-27 fusion hybrids exhibit elongated shape and front-to-back polarity. SGC-7901 fusion lost the epithelial morphology and assumed a fibroblast-like appearance. Scale bar 100 μm, Magnification: ×100. b. The growth of the parental and hybrid cells was determined by cell counting assay. c. The expression of PCNA and CyclinD1 proteins in parental and hybrid cells was examined by western blot
