FAM83A signaling induces epithelial-mesenchymal transition by the PI3K/AKT/Snail pathway in NSCLC

Figure 9. Increased FAM83A expression promoted lung metastasis and EMT in vivo, and AKT inhibitor reduced EMT owing to FAM83A overexpression. (A) HE staining of lung tissues in several groups (A549 and H1299 cells after manipulation of FAM83A expression with or without MK2206) of tumor-bearing mice. (B) Immunohistochemical staining for FAM83A, E-cadherin and Vimentin was performed using serial sections of mouse lung tissues. Scale bar, 100 μm.
