Figure 4 Stable knockdown of heparanase inhibits in vitro angiogenesis of gastric cancer cells. Extensive tube formation of endothelial cells was observed in parental and vector (mock) groups. However, when the endothelial cells were treated by the medium preconditioned with stable heparanase shRNA transfected SGC-7901 cells, tube formation was suppressed. The symbol (a) indicates a significant (P < 0.05) decrease compared to parental cells. Experiments were performed in triplicate with essentially identical results.
