Silencing of the tyrosine phosphatase PTP-PEST reduces PRL-mediated cell migration and invasion. a Tyrosine phosphatase inhibition abolishes PRL-induced TMX2-28 cell migration a and invasion b. TMX2-28 GFP, PAK WT, or PAK1 Y3F cells were assessed as in Fig. 5. cf Equal amount of T47D (c, d) or TMX2-28 (e, f) clones were transfected with either control or PTP-PEST siRNA and loaded into the upper part of the Boyden chamber covered (d, f) or not (c, e) with Matrigel. The number of cells that migrated/invaded to the lower chamber toward PRL (white bar) or vehicle (black bar) after 48 h was counted and plotted. Bars represent mean ± SE. *P < 0.05 compared with the same cells not treated with PRL. #P < 0.05 compared with the same cells treated with PRL but transfected with control siRNA (f)
