    Figure Lengend Snippet: DLL1 downregulation in MCF-7 cells decreases proliferation and induces cell cycle arrest in the G1 phase. MCF-7, BT474, and MDA-MB-231 cells were not transfected (NT) or transfected with DLL1-siRNA (DLL1-si1/2), or negative control (Ctr) siRNA as indicated. (A-B) Cellular growth was determined by microscopy using the trypan blue exclusion (A) and the MTT (B) methods at 72 hours after transfection in MCF-7 and 72 up to120 hours in BT474 and MDA-MB-231 cells. Values were calculated as relative percentage of cells transfected with Ctr-siRNA, in each assay for each cell type. The graphs represent data (mean ± SD) from at least three independent assays. (C-E) At 86 hours post-transfection cells were collected, fixed, stained with propidium iodide, and DNA content was analyzed by flow cytometry. Representative histograms showing the effect of DLL1 downregulation in cell cycle progression from these assays are shown. Graph shows mean percentage (+ SD) of cells in each phase of the cell cycle of four independent assays. *, P

    DLL1 downregulation impairs Notch pathway activation in BC cells and decreases MCF-7 and BT474 colony formation abilities. (A) Expression of DLL1 mRNA and protein levels in luminal A MCF-7, luminal B BT474, and triple-negative MDA-MB-231 cells were quantitated by qRT-PCR and immunoblotting. The DLL1 mRNA values were normalized against the HPRT1 mRNA levels in the same samples. α-tubulin was used as the loading control. (B-F) Cells were transiently transfected with DLL1 siRNAs (DLL1-si1/2), negative control siRNA (Ctr-si) or not-transfected (NT). (B) Total RNA was extracted from the indicated cells 24–38 hours post-transfection and DLL1 mRNA levels were quantitated by qRT-PCR. (C) Total soluble protein extracts were prepared from cells 72 hours following transfection and the levels of DLL1 protein were assessed by immunoblotting. The numbers under the bands indicate DLL1 fold changes relative to Ctr-siRNA transfected cells after normalization against α-tubulin. (D) qRT-PCR analysis of HEY1 mRNA in the indicated cells at 48–72 hours after transfection. The values in (B) and (D) were normalized against the HPRT1 mRNA levels in the same sample and calculated as mean fold change (+ SD) relative to the respective control cells transfected with Ctr-siRNA. Graphs in (A, B and D) represents mean (+ SD) of at least three independent assays. (E-F) Colony formation of MCF-7, BT474 and MDA-MB-231 cells at day 9 post transfection. Representative fields of crystal-violet-stained colonies for each cell type of four independent assays are shown.
