MCT1 is a direct target of miR-124 in breast cancers. a Prediction programs from Targetscan and illustrated 3′UTR region of SLC16A1 mRNA contains complimentary binding sites for the seeding sequence of miR-124. b Western blot analysis of the downregulated expression levels of MCT1 in miR-124 overexpressed MCF7 (left) and SKBR3 (right) cells. β-actin is a loading control. c Luciferase assays showed miR-124 targeted predicted 3′UTR region of MCT1 but not the mutant 3UTR. d Analysis of the negative correlation between MCT1 mRNAs and miR-124 expressions in human breast cancer specimens. **p < 0.01
