Co-culture experiments. In the co-culture experiments, either only MCF-7 cells (60,000) were transfected with HpCD47Pr-T, only THP-1 cells (1000) with HpSIRPαI7-T or both MCF-7 and THP-1 cells were transfected with the corresponding PPRH or scrambled PPRHs in controls. As positive control an antibody anti-CD47 was used. Then THP-1 cells were differentiated with 3 ng/ml PMA. The percentage of viable cells was calculated relative to the control of MCF-7 cells incubated with 3 ng/ml PMA. Data represent the mean ± SE of at least three experiments (*p < 0.05, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.005)
