Effect of FN treatment on the expression of FAK and p-FAK in MCF-7 cells: MCF-7 cells (300,000 cells/ml) were grown in SFCM in absence (C), in presence of 20 μg/ml FN coated for 30 mins (1), 1 hour (2) and 2 hours (3). The cells were collected; extracted and equal protein (100 μg) was subjected to western blot analysis with anti-FAK (upper panel) and anti-p-FAK (lower panel) antibody (1:1000 dilution for 1½ hrs at 37°C). β-tubulin was used as internal control and done in parallel to all the blots. The accompanying graphs represent the comparative densitometric/quantitative analysis of the band intensities using Image J Launcher (version Data are means±SEM of three experiments.
