MCP-1 specifically induces the migration of SG2 cells rather than that of SCDC2 cells. Transwell migration assay for SG-2 cells (a) and SCDC2 cells (b) by stimulation with 10 ng/mL of MCP-1. Anti-MCP-1 neutralizing antibody (nAb) was also added with MCP-1 for migration in SG2 cells (a). The cells that migrated to the underside of the membrane were labeled with DAPI and counted under a fluorescence microscope in five high-power fields. Data are presented as the mean ± standard deviation. as compared with the unstimulated control (-) for each cell line.
