Figure 7. Effect of TS (A) and TA (B) on HUVEC invasion in Transwell assay. A total of 2 ×104 HUVECs were seeded in the top chamber and treated with ethanol vehicle or varying concentrations of TS or TA. After 24 h, HUVECs that invaded through the membrane were stained with crystal violet and quantified. The percentage of inhibition was expressed using vehicle treated cells at 100%. The results are expressed as mean ± SD (n = 5). Columns, mean; bars, SD. *, P<0.05; ***, P<0.001 versus vehicle-treated group. Scale bar, 10 μm
