Figure 5 Expression and phosphorylation of ERK1 and ERK2 in MDR and parental cells. Western blot analysis of the ERK1 (A), ERK2 (B), p-ERK1 and p-ERK2 (C) expression in HepG2/ADM, SMMC7721/ADM as well as in HepG2 and SMMC7721 cells (n = 3) was performed. The expression of ERK1 and ERK2 was markedly lower in SMMC7721/ADM cells than in parental cells. However, the ERK2 expression was markedly increased and the ERK1 expression had no significant change in HepG2/ADM cells. The phosphorylation of ERK1 and ERK2 was lower in MDR cells than in parental cells (D). The results are shown as mean ± SE. Statistical analyses comparing MDR cells with parental cells were performed using Student's t-test. aP < 0.05, cP < 0.01 vs parental cells (data not shown).
