Antimetastatic Potential of Rhodomyrtone on Human Chondrosarcoma SW1353 Cells

Figure 4

Effect of rhodomyrtone on MMP-2 and MMP-9 activities and protein expression. (a) Photograph presented the gelatinolytic activity of MMP-2 and MMP-9. (b) Quantitative analysis of MMP-2 and MMP-9 activities was calculated using NIH ImageJ. (c) Expression of MMP-2 and MMP-9 proteins was detected by using the specific antibodies. (d) Protein levels of MMP-2 and MMP-9 were significantly suppressed by rhodomyrtone in a concentration-dependent manner. Data are presented as mean ± standard deviation (SD) from three independent experiments. , , vs. untreated control.
