GLI suppression does not induce a luminal-like phenotype in androgen-independent cells.

<p>(A) The transformed morphology of LNCaP-GLI1 cells does not reverse upon transfection with GLI1 or GLI2 siRNA. (B) qPCR analysis of GLI1 and GLI2 mRNA in LNCaP-GLI1 cells transfected with GLI1 or GLI2 siRNA. (C) RT-PCR analysis of ΔNp63 and AR mRNA in LNCaP-GLI1 cells transfected with GLI1 or GLI2 siRNA. (D) qPCR analysis of GLI1 and GLI2 mRNA in DU145 and PC-3 cells transfected with GLI1 and GLI2 siRNA. (E) GLI reporter activity is suppressed in DU145 and PC-3 cells transfected with GLI1 and GLI2 siRNA (n.b. reporter activity may be influenced by GLI3 expression in PC-3 cells <a href="http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi/10.1371/journal.pone.0020271#pone.0020271-Datta1" target="_blank">[17]</a>). (F) RT-PCR analysis of ΔNp63 and AR mRNA in DU145 and PC-3 cells transfected with GLI1 and GLI2 siRNA.</p>
