Silencing HOXB8 inhibits the proliferation and invasion capacity of CRC cells. a, b Table knockdown of HOXB8 CRC cell lines were established in SW480 and HCT116, and verified by qRT-PCR (left), Western blot (right). cf The proliferation ability of CRC cells with low expression of HOXB8 possessed weaker proliferation ability in MTT (c, e) and in colony (d, f) both in SW480 and HCT116. gn The migration and invasion abilities were tested in transwell assay in SW480 (g, h) and HCT116 (k, l), Statistical result of each experiment is also shown on the right side both in SW480 (i, j) and HCT116 (m, n) respectively. ***P < 0.001, ****P < 0.0001
