Yap deficiency suppresses cell proliferation in vivo and in vitro. (A-F) The Ki67 positive ratio of lens epithelial cells decreased in Yap-deficient mice at different stages (arrowheads indicate Ki67 positive cells). (G) The relative number of Ki67 positive lens epithelial cells (number of Ki67 positive lens epithelial cells / lens epithelium area). The data are shown as mean ± S.E.M. (Student’s t-test, *P<0.05, **P<0.01, n=10). (H-I) Knockdown efficiency of Yap in αTN4 cell using siRNA. (J-K) Cell viability and growth assay revealed that proliferation was downregulated in Yap knockdown αTN4 cells. The data are shown as mean ± S.E.M. (Two-way RM ANOVA, **P<0.01, n=5). Scale bars: 50 μm.
