miR-2052 inhibits the proliferation, migration, and invasion of HCC cells in vitro and in vivo. (A) miR-2052 expression in HCC tissues analyzed by qPCR (n=42). (B) Correlation between HULC and miR-2052 expression in paired HCC tissues (n=42). (C–E) Tumor volume and weight measured in tissues from nude mice injected with miR-2052 stable HLF cells. (F) Ki67 levels measured by immunohistochemistry. (G, H) The expression of miR-2052 and HULC in xenograft tumors measured by qPCR. *P < 0.05, ***P < 0.001.
