Results showed that nuclear [beta]-catenin, the indicator of Wnt/[beta]-catenin signaling, was kept at low level in normal cervical epithelial cells, but was significantly increased in cultured SiHa and HeLa cells, as shown in Figure 4A.
Mitotic block induced in HeLa cells by low concentrations of paclitaxel (Taxol) results in abnormal mitotic exit and apoptotic cell death.
HeLa cells were collected and then fixed with methanol:Phosphate Buffered Saline (PBS) (1:1) and methanol.
The DF-1 cells and Hela cells were cultured in DMEM medium, supplemented with 10% fetal bovine serum at 37AdegC in a 5% CO2 incubator.
Knockdown of NEAT1 decreased the number of colonies in CaSki cell from 136.667 [+ or -] 13.503 to 71.667 [+ or -] 7.506 (t = −18.76, P = 0.003) and decreased the number of colonies in HeLa cell from 128.667 [+ or -] 13.317 to 65.667 [+ or -] 7.024 (t = −5.54, P = 0.031).
Bright-field images of HeLa cells. Cells were either mock treated (0.1% DMSO-treated control) or treated with L for 24 hours at the concentrations specified.
In order to determine whether it is located in peroxisome, we cotransfected SLC15A3-GFP and RFPPXMP2 into HeLa cells. PXMP2 is a protein that is specifically located in peroxisome [25].

hominis, the detection of bacteria in infected WISH after three weeks of cultivation in the presence of gentamicin indicates that human cells can be chronically infected by intracellular bacteria, as previously demonstrated by Hopfe by using HeLa cells [31].
