From: PAX8 expression in high-grade serous ovarian cancer positively regulates attachment to ECM via Integrin β3

RNAi of PAX8 brings to an increased sensitivity to anoikis of ovarian cancer cells and reduced expression of EMT markers. a Following RNAi of PAX8, the survival percentage of anchorage-independent KURAMOCHI cells was compared with that of cells under adherent condition at 24 h and 48 h. Values are mean ± SD of three independent experiments normalized with respect to the cells transfected with the scramble siRNA. p-value was calculated by t-test p ≤ 0.1. b Western blots to evaluate the protein levels of Bcl-2 and Bax after PAX8 depletion. c The expression levels of a panel of mesenchymal markers were measured by qRT-PCR in KURAMOCHI cells 48 h after RNAi of PAX8. The values are mean ± SD of three independent experiments in duplicate, normalized by the expression of ABL and expressed as fold change with respect to the siCTR cells, whose value was set at 1.0. p-value was calculated by t-test 0.001 ≤ p ≤ 0.1
