Inhibition of ovarian cancer cell migration and invasion in the presence of Yukyung Karne. a SKOV6 cells were grown in the presence of Paclitaxel (Pac, 10 nM), or different concentrations of Yukyung Karne (YK 50 μg, 100 μg, 200 μg) or PY [Pac (10 nM) + YK (100 μg)] for 24 h and cell invasion was determined by using transwell plates. No. of cells infiltrating through 8 μm pore size filter were stained with crystal violet (20 %), air dried and quantified by microscopy. b SKOV6 cells were grown in the presence of Yukyung Karne (100 μg) and subjected to scratch assay for 6 h or 24 h. Representative images of 3 independent experiments are shown here. All results are shown as mean ± S.D. from five random fields. Statistical significance:*, p <0.05, **, p <0.001
