MiR-126 promotes esophageal squamous cell carcinoma via inhibition of apoptosis and autophagy

Figure 4. miR-126 inhibition increases apoptosis in ESCC cells. (A, B) TUNEL staining was used to detect apoptosis in TE13 and Eca109 cells. Magnification, × 100. Apoptotic rate is indicated in the lower right panel. (C, D) Apoptotic cell number is displayed in the first quadrant. Apoptotic rate is displayed in the lower right panel. Results are displayed as the average ± SD. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, and ***P < 0.001.
