An in vitro environment simulating high stromal levels of FN improved the migration ability of the ESCC cell lines, Eca-109 and TE-1. a Changes in morphology induced by culture with MSC-conditioned medium for 42 h. Magnification, × 200. (b, c) Wound-healing assays (b) and Transwell assays (c) showed that culture with MSC-conditioned medium increased EECC cell migration ability. Magnification, × 40. The line chart in (a) shows the distance cells migrated over time, and the photographs in (b) show cells that traversed the membrane (Eca-109, P = 0.001; TE-1, P < 0.001). Scale bar = 100 μm
