Figure 9 Cell flow cytometry. A: SMMC7721/ pEGFP-cytokeratin 8 cells; B: SMMC7721/ pEGFP-C1 cells; C: SMMC7721 cells without transfection. Cells were collected and washed twice with PBS, suspended in 200 μL binding buffer and 10 μL annexin V-FITC for 20 min in the dark, and thereafter, 300 μL binding buffer and 5 μL propidium iodide (PI) were added to each sample. The apoptotic cells were determined using a flow cytometer by staining with Annexin V-FITC. Representative dot plots show annexin V-FITC staining in cells. Results are representative of 3 independent experiments. FITC: Fluorescein isothiocyanate; PBS: Phosphate-buffered saline.
