Effect of stromal fibroblast ECM on the expression of syndecans in Caco-2 and HCT-116 cells. Caco-2 (A) and HCT-116 cells (B) were cultured on Petri dishes in the absence (Ctrl) or presence of fibroblast ECM (Fibrob. ECM) for three days, and RNA was extracted. The expression level of each gene was normalized to that of β-actin. The data from each experiment were obtained in triplicate and are represented as the average ± standard deviation. *p ≤ 0.05. Syndecan-1 (Syn-1), syndecan-2 (Syn-2), syndecan-3 (Syn-3), syndecan-4 (Syn-4).
