Fig. (1) Densitometric analysis of western blot reveals significantly decreased N-cadherin α-catenin and β-catenin expression in HLEC
exposed to dexamethasone for 24 hours as compared to unexposed cells. Dexamethasone exposure did not change γ-Catenin or vimentin
expression. Vimentin was used as positive control for adhesion molecule detection. *P<0.05, **P<0.01.
