Model of LINC00857 in EAC. (A and B) WST-1 assays were used to determine the cell viability for MET and STAT3 siRNA transfecting OE33 and FLO1 cells. Values represented the mean ± s.d. from three independent experiments. *p < 0.05, **p < 0.01. (C) Model of LINC00857 modulating the cells proliferation, migration, invasion and induced apoptosis via MET, STAT3, c-Myc and CREB proteins in EAC.
