Figure 7 Diabetes promoted liver metastasis through integrin αvβ6 in the mouse model. (A) Liver metastasis was induced by intrasplenic injection of CT26 cells. (B) The number of liver metastatic nodules in each group is shown. (C) Protein expression of β6 was detected by western blot. * P<0.05 vs control. # P<0.05 vs DM. DM – diabetic mice; DM+MET – diabetic mice treated with oral administration of metformin; DM+sh-β6 – diabetic mice treated by injection of β6 shRNA.
