Suppression of GRP78 expression partially decreases the ER stress agonist-induced metastasis in thyroid cancer cells. a Western blotting analysis of XBP1s, PERK and GRP78 protein expression in ARO and FRO cells when treated with TM (0–1 μg/L). b Transwell assays were performed to assess the migration of ARO and FRO cells when treated with TM(1 μg/L). Bar graphs represent the average migration rate of ARO and AFO cells, p < 0.001, p < 0.0001. c Transwell assays were performed to assess the migration of siGRP78-transfected ARO and FRO cells when treated with TM(1 μg/L). Bar graphs represent the average migration rate of ARO and AFO cells, p < 0.05, p < 0.001, p < 0.0001
