Figure 1

Effects of CD44 on insect cell proliferation. TN insect cells were permanently transfected with ROD1 [5] or CD44 as indicated in Methods and their growth in culture was compared with parallel control cell cultures transfected with β-galactosidase. The increase in cell numbers observed in ROD1 or CD44 transfected cultures was expressed as percentage of the number of cells observed in β-galactosidase transfected cells after the same day in culture. The values are mean ± SEM, from 5 to 6 experiments. Only the effects of ROD1 were statistically different from the controls (Krustal-Wallis and Dunn's multiple comparisons test). *, P < 0.05. **, P < 0.01.
