Figure 5 ZEB1 mediates the metastasis regulated by cullin 4A in perihilar cholangiocarcinoma. A: Representative IHC images of ZEB1 expression in PHCC tissues and adjacent normal tissues. Corresponding semiquantification of ZEB1 expression is shown; B: Linear regression analyses of IHC scores between CUL4A and E-cadherin expression in PHCC; C: Linear regression analyses of IHC scores between CUL4A and ZEB1 expression in PHCC; D: Western blot assay was performed to investigate the E-cadherin and vimentin expression after ZEB1 interference in CUL4A overexpressing FRH0201 cells; E and F: The Transwell and Migration assays were performed to analyse the migration and invasion ability changes in CUL4A overexpressing FRH0201 cells with ZEB1 depletion. bP < 0.01 based on the Student’s t-test. All results are from at least three independent experiments. Data are represented as mean ± SD. CUL4A: Cullin 4A; PHCC: Perihilar cholangiocarcinoma.
