Characterization of HYX1 cells. a During the first 20 days in culture, the cells formed clusters and appeared round. b In subculture, the cells spread out and looked flattened and larger (original magnification × 100). c Representative TEM image of an HYX1 cell. d ICG uptake assay showed pale green ICG-positive cells (as indicated by the yellow arrows). e PAS staining of HYX1 showed positive cells with cytoplasm appeared red (as indicated by the blue arrows). f, g HYX1 cells were treated with DMSO + HGF or PBS (control group) for 5 days and western blot analysis of the indicated proteins. h RT-PCR for the indicated genes. Data are presented as mean ± SEM; compared with control group, *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, as determined by t test
