Overexpression of miR-22 inhibited HCC cell proliferation and metastasis in vitro. a Transfection of miR-22 overexpression vector to MHCC-97H and SMMC-7721 cells increases the expression of miR-22 detected by real-time quantitative RT-PCR. b Cell proliferation of these cells transfected as in a was measured at the indicated time periods using the MTT assay. c Overexpression of miR-22 presented a slower closing of scratch wound, compared with pcDNA3.1 control, at 48 h after transfection in MHCC-97H and SMMC-7721 cells. d Migration and invasion potential in both cell lines treated as above were measured by Transwell assays and were expressed as relative cell numbers.
