Figure 6

MiR-145 inhibits the expression of c-Myc, Cyclin D1, and Cdk6 in Tca8113 cells. Cells transfected with miR-145 mimics and miRNA control were starved overnight and harvested. (A) Total RNA was isolated and RT-qPCR was performed to evaluate the expression of c-Myc, Cyclin D1, and Cdk6. Details are described in the Materials and Methods. **, P <0.01. (B) Cell lysates were collected and subjected to Western blotting assays. The biological functions of miR-145 in Tca8113 cells were determined by blotting c-Myc and its downstream target, cyclin D1, as well as Cdk6. β-actin was used for loading control of Western blotting. Shown in the right portion of the panel is a quantitative illustration of expression of the indicated proteins using densitometry to measure the density of the corresponding bands on Western blot shown in the left portion of the panel.
