Biological changes in Snail-overexpressed SGC7901 cells were studied by establishing a pEGFP-C1-Snail carrier. The significance of Snail in epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) as well as the invasion and metastatic capacity of gastric cancer cells was also discussed; moreover, we attempted to verify the probable cancer stem cell characteristics of Snail-overexpressed cells. A pEGFP-C1-Snail eukaryotic expression plasmid was constructed and pEGFP-C1(-) and pEGFP-C1-Snail plasmids were extracted and transfected into SGC7901 cells using Lipofectamine 2000.
