Effect of intestine-specific CaSR knock-down
on EMT-associated genes in the colon. Colons sampled from CaSR
−/− (CaSRint-KO) and CaSR
+/+ (CaSRWT) mice were investigated for protein expression of mesenchymal markers αSma, N-cad, Snai1, Snai2 and Vimentin. Representative images in black and white for the markers are shown in addition to the merged images (red or white channels for the indicated markers and blue for DAPI). n = 5 animals/group. Scale bar: 50 μm.
