KU shows potent anticancer activity in colorectal cancer cells. (A) Relative viability of HCT116, DLD1, SW480, HT29, SW620, Caco2, CT26, and COLO320 cells treated with KU. (B,C) Invasion assays in Caco2, HCT116, and CT26 cells treated with 5 μM KU (B), and quantification of invaded cell numbers in each group (C). (D) Comparison of IC50 values between UA and KU. (E) Comparison of the relative invasive abilities of Caco2, HCT116, and CT26 cells treated with UA and KU. Results are reported as the mean ± standard error of the mean. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001.
