Plumbagin downregulates CXCR4 in different tumor cell types. Gastric cancer (AGS, MKN45, and SNU16), lung adenocarcinoma (H1299), renal cell carcinoma (786-O), oral adenosquamous carcinoma (CAL27), hepatocellular carcinoma (Hep3B) cells were incubated with 5 μM plumbagin for 6 h. Whole-cell extracts were prepared and analyzed by Western blot analysis using antibody against CXCR4. The same blots were stripped and reprobed with β-actin antibody to show equal protein loading. Representative results of three independent experiments are shown.
