Figure 3. Effect of siRNA mediated AQP1 down-regulation (AQP1DR) on cell migration in HCEC cells. Panels A and B show that AQP1DR decreased cell migration as determined by the scratch wound healing assay in control and AQP1DR cells.
A decrease in cell migration was significant at 24 h and 30 h p<0.05 and CI=95% as determined by the paired T-Test (n=3).
C: Decreased cell migration was observed in HCEC cells following AQP1DR as compared to control cells, as determined by the
in vitro endothelial cell migration assay.
