Antiproliferative Action of Conjugated Linoleic Acid on Human MCF-7 Breast Cancer Cells Mediated by Enhancement of Gap Junctional Intercellular Communication through Inactivation of NF-κB

Figure 3

Gap junctional intercellular communication (GJIC) in MCF-7 cells measured by scrape-loading/dye-transfer (SL/DT) technique. MCF-7 cells treated with 40 μM c9,t11-CLA, t10,c12-CLA, and LA for 48 h. (a) Representative images of GJIC. (b) Quantification of data (a). Values are expressed as means ± standard deviations ( ). Means with different lowercase letters are significantly different at by Duncan’s multiple-range test.
