MOESM3 of The association of semaphorin 5A with lymph node metastasis and adverse prognosis in cervical cancer

Additional file 3: Figure S3. MET regulates VEGF-C expression through HGF. (a, b) HeLa, Siha, and Caski cells were pretreated with the Met neutralizing antibody (Met antibody; 2 μg/mL) or transfected with Met siRNA for 24 h followed by treatment with HGF for 24 h, the VEGF-C expression was examined by RT-PCR and ELISA. Data shown are representative of at least three independent experiments. †P < 0.05 compared with control; *P < 0.05 compared with HGF-treated group (a, b). HGF, hepatcyte growth factor; RT-PCR, Quantitative real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction.
