Long non-coding RNA DLEUI promotes papillary thyroid carcinoma progression by sponging miR-421 and increasing ROCK1 expression

Figure 1. DLEU1 is overexpressed in PTC tissues and cell lines. (A) QRT-PCR analysis shows the expression of DLEU1 in 54 paired PTC tissues and adjacent normal thyroid tissues. (B) QRT-PCR analysis shows the expression of DLEU1 in four PTC cell lines (BHP5-16, 8505C, TPC-1, and SW1736) and the human thyroid follicular epithelial cells, Nthy-ori3-1. (C) QRT-PCR analysis shows the expression of DLEU1 in the cytoplasmic and nuclear extracts of TPC-1 cells. Note: The data are shown as the means ± SD of at least three independent experiments. *P< 0.05 and **P< 0.01.
