Ectopic expression of MELK in oral squamous cell carcinoma and its correlation with epithelial mesenchymal transition

Blocking MELK diminishes the EMT progress in OSCC cell lines. Representative immunoblotting analysis of MELK, E-cad, Slug and vimentin expression after transfection of shMELK in SCC9 (A) and Fadu (B) cell. Immunofluorescence analysis of MELK, vimentin and E-cadherin in SCC9 (C) and FaDu (D) cells transfected with shMELK. Scale bars = 10 μm. *P **P
