The microRNA miR-29c-5p inhibits cell proliferation and migration by targeting TMEM98 in head and neck carcinoma

miR-29c-5p reduces the migration of FaDu and HSC-3 cells. (A, B) Upregulation of miR-29c-5p expression significantly reduced migration of FaDu and HSC-3 cells, while downregulation of miR-29c-5p expression using the cognate inhibitor markedly increased migration compared with the negative control. (C, D) Significant differences were not observed in the rates of apoptosis among the test and control cells. *p
