si-MMP2 knockdown efficiency. A, The knockdown efficiency according to the relative mRNA expression levels of MMP2 in HepG2 cells in the normal control, polybrene, si-control, and si-MMP2 groups based on real-time quantitative polymerase chain reaction (RT-qPCR). B, The knockdown efficiency according to the relative mRNA expression levels of MMP2 in Huh7 cells in the normal control, polybrene, si-control, and si-MMP2 groups based on RT-qPCR. C, The relative protein levels of MMP2 in HepG2 cells in the normal control, polybrene, si-control, and si-MMP2 groups based on western blot assays. D, The relative protein levels of MMP2 in Huh7 cells in the normal control, polybrene, si-control, and si-MMP2 groups based on western blot assays. ** P<0.01 vs. the normal control group, according to one-factor analysis of variance (ANOVA) followed by a post hoc least significant difference (LSD) test.
