Supplementary Material

Supplementary Figure: LMW-HA has no effect on TLR4 negative K1 cell proliferation and migration. To investigate if LMW-HA promotes proliferation and migration of W3 cells via TLR4, TLR4 negative K1 cells was stimulated with LMW-HA, and the data showed that LMW-HA did not promote the proliferation and migration of K1 cells, moreover it also did not upregulate CXCR7 expression on K1 cells.
