MEP1A knock-down inhibits colorectal cancer cell migration and invasion. Scratch assays and matrigel invasion assays showed that MEP1A knock-down LoVo cells had less migration ability (a) and invasion ability (b) than control LoVo cells. The wound areas were measured 36 h post injury. The results represent mean ± SD of at least 12 wounds and were analyzed by the Student’s t-test (* p < 0.05)
