NC attenuates the migratory capacity and EMT of breast cancer cells. a, b MDA-MB-468 and MCF-7 cells were treated with the indicated concentrations of NC for 48 h. NC significantly inhibited the migration of cells into the denuded areas. The MDA-MB-468 and MCF-7 cells were treated with increasing concentrations of NC (0, 1.0 μM) for 48 h. c, d Photos of the invasive and migration were taken under a microscope with a 200× objective. e, f Both cell types were treated with 0, 1, or 2.5 μM NC for 48 h and then Protein and mRNA expression levels of EMT-related genes were detected. *P < 0.05 or **P < 0.05 compared with the control group
