FOXO3a knockdown promoted the migration and invasion of PDAC cells. a Wound healing assay was carried out to investigate the migratory ability of PANC-1 and SW1990 cells. b Transwell migration and invasion assays were applied to assess the migratory and invasive capacities of PANC-1 and SW1990 cells. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001

SPRY2 silencing promoted the migration and invasion of PDAC cells (a) Wound healing assay was carried out to investigate the migratory ability of PANC-1 and SW1990 cells. b Transwell assay was applied to assess the migratory and invasive capacities of PANC-1 and SW1990 cells. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001

Silencing of β-catenin reversed the promotion effects of FOXO3a knockdown on EMT- associated migration and invasion of PDAC cells. a Wound healing assay was carried out to investigate the migratory ability of PANC-1 and SW1990 cells. b Transwell assay was applied to assess the migratory and invasive capacities of PANC-1 and SW1990 cells. c The protein expression of FOXO3a, SPRY2, β-catenin, TCF4, E-cad and VIM were detected in PANC-1 and SW1990 cells by Western blot. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001, ns non-significant

SPRY2 silencing reversed the suppressor effects induced by FOXO3a overexpression on EMT-associated migration and invasion of PDAC cells. a Wound healing assay was carried out to investigate the migratory ability of PANC-1 and SW1990 cells. b Transwell assay was applied to assess the migratory and invasive capacities of PANC-1 and SW1990 cells. c The protein expression of FOXO3a, SPRY2, β-catenin, TCF4, E-cad and VIM were detected in PANC-1 and SW1990 cells by Western blot. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001, ns non-significant
