CXCR4 is essential for CXCL12-induced invasion
Disruption of CXCR4 and CXCL12 interaction by selective antagonists or anti-CXCR4 antibody blocks cancer metastasis, suggesting an essential role for CXCR4. Therefore, when HCT116 cells were transfected with siRNA specific for CXCR4, it efficiently inhibited CXCL12-mediated invasion to about 31 % compared to the control condition. (Fig. 5a, b). Indeed, the CXCR4-specific siRNA reduced CXCR4 protein expression (Fig. 5c).
