PHF21B activates Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway. a PHF21B overexpression promoted the stabilization of cytosolic β-catenin, and increased β-catenin nuclear accumulation in indicated cells, as confirmed by western blot analysis. α-Tubulin and P84 were used as loading controls. b Luciferase-reported TCF/LEF transcriptional activity in the indicated cells. c Fold change of indicated genes mRNA expression in Real-time PCR analysis comparing cells overexpressing PHF21B versus Vector (V) or PHF21B-RNAi versus RNAi-vector (RNAi-V). d Knockdown of β-catenin with specific siRNA in PHF21B-overexpressing cells, as confirmed by western blot analysis. e Luciferase-reported TCF/LEF transcriptional activity in the indicated cells. f Histograms showing the mean number of spheres formed by the indicated cells. Each bar represents the mean ± SD of three independent experiments.*P < 0.05
