LOXL2-expressing MCF10A cells form ErbB2-dependent branching structures on matrix. (A) When plated on Matrigel-coated plates, 10A cont cells remained small and discrete, whereas 10A L2 cells formed extensive branching structures. Quantification of branch-points revealed that 10A L2 cells have significantly more branch-points (right panel; P = 0.00004). (B) Herceptin treatment of the 10A L2 cells significantly decreased the degree of branching of these cells to that seen for controls (right panel; P = 0.0167 and P = 0.0398, respectively). (C) Lapatinib treatment of the 10A L2 cells significantly abrogated the branching ability of these cells to that seen for controls (right panel; P = 0.0007 and P = 0.0003, respectively).
