Effects of DKK1 silencing on cell proliferation, invasion and apoptosis in RASFs. RASFs were transfected with si-DKK1 or si-NC for 48 h. (a) Protein and mRNA expression of DKK1 was determined by qRT-PCR and Western blot, respectively. (b) Cell proliferation was assessed by BrdU-ELISA assay. (c) Invasion was assessed by Transwell assay after 6 h. (d) Cell apoptosis was measured by flow cytometric analysis of cells labeled with Annexin-V/PI double staining. All data are presented as mean ± SEM, n = 6. ##P < 0.01 vs. si-NC
