Blockage of p16INK4A induction attenuates cell cycle arrest and growth inhibition caused by GGCT knockdown. a-b The distribution of cell cycle phases in MCF7 (A) and MDA-MB-231 (b) cells was analyzed by flow cytometry 4 days after transfection with the siRNAs indicated. c-d Representative images of MDA-MB-231 cells (c), the number of Trypan blue-negative viable MDA-MB-231 cells (d, left panel), and the proportion of dead cells (d, right panel) at 7 days after transfection with the indicated siRNAs are shown.
