Identification and functional activity of matrix-remodeling associated 5 (MXRA5) in benign hyperplastic prostate

Figure 7. MXRA5 participates in the regulation of cell cycle via MAPK pathway. (A, B) Downregulation of proteins involved the cell cyle regulation (CDK2, CDK4, Cyclin D1 and Cyclin A1/2) in the WPMY-1 cells was revealed by Western blot analysis. GAPDH was used as a control and values of statistical data shown were mean ± SD of triplicate measurements and repeated three times with similar results. Statistical significance was calculated using ANOVA and ** means P < 0.01. (C, D) Western blot analysis for phosphorylated and total ERK1/2 as well as p38 MAPK (phosphorylated (p) and total (t). GAPDH was used as a control and ** means P < 0.01.
