XIAP induced EMT by targeting TGF-β signal pathway in ESCC cells. a Western blotting was used to detect the expression of TGF-β in TE13 and EC9706 cells. b Microscopic pictures of Transwell assay for cell migration (×200). c Statistical chart of the number of migrated TE13 and EC9706 cells (*p < 0.05, **p < 0.01). d Expression of EMT genes was detected by qRT-PCR (**p < 0.01 versus sh-Ctrl group; #p < 0.01 versus sh-XIAP group). e Western-blot was used to detect the expression of E-cadherin, N-cadherin and Vimentin with or without TGF-β
