Knockdown of TXNDC9 induces apoptosis and autophagy in glioma and mediates cell differentiation by p53 activation

Figure 6. TXNDC9 regulated glioma autophagy and differentiation via controlling p53. (A) The level of LC3 and localization in U87 and U251 cells after si-TXNDC9/si-NC transfection, PFTα, and 3MA (5 mM) treatment. Representative immunofluorescence images were shown. (B) The protein level of Beclin-1 and LC3-I/II was detected in U87 and U251cells; Gapdh was indicated as a loading control. n= 6, *P<0.05. (C) U87 and U251 cell morphology were scanned after si-TXNDC9/si-NC transfection and PFTα treatment. (D) The protein level of vimentin and GFAP were measured in U87 and U251 cells, Gapdh was indicated as a loading control. n= 6, *P<0.05, **P<0.01.
