Figure 2 Total flavone of Abelmoschus manihot inhibited transforming growth factor-β1 induced migration and invasion of IEC-6 cells. A: The inhibitory effect of TFA (5, 10 and 15 μg/mL) on TGF-β1-induced morphological changes at 48 h was observed by phase contrast microscopy; B: The representative image of the wound healing assay; C: The representative image of transwell assay. The tendency is concomitant with the wound healing assay. TGF-β1 induced the migration and invasion of IEC-6 cells, whereas TFA suppressed this phenomenon. TFA: Total flavone of Abelmoschus manihot; TGF: Transforming growth factor.
