Fibroblastic galectin-1-fostered invasion and metastasis are mediated by TGF-β1-induced epithelial-mesenchymal transition in gastric cancer


Figure 3. GAL-1/LGALS1 promotes EMT in GC, and EMT promotes lymph node metastasis of GC. (A) Representative images of GCT without EMT. (B) Representative images of GCT with EMT. (C) GAL-1/LGALS1 significantly promoted EMT in GC (P < 0.05). (D) GC with EMT was more prone to lymph node metastasis (P < 0.05). (E, F) Representative images of GC cells with or without EMT in metastatic lymph nodes.
