LncRNA HCG11/miR-579-3p/MDM2 axis modulates malignant biological properties in pancreatic carcinoma via Notch/Hes1 signaling pathway

HCG11, miR-579-3p and MDM2 co-regulated the biological behaviors of pancreatic carcinoma cells partly by regulating Notch/Hes1 pathway. (A) MDM2 protein expression AsPC-1 cells was detected by western blotting assay after upregulation of HCG11, HCG11+miR-579-3p, or HCG11+miR-579-3p+MDM2. (B–D) The OD values, cell cycle and clones number in AsPC-1 cells were analyzed by CCK-8, flow cytometry and colony formation assays when treatment with HCG11, HCG11+miR-579-3p, or HCG11+miR-579-3p+MDM2. (E) The apoptosis rates of AsPC-1 cells were determined by flow cytometry assay following HCG11, HCG11+miR-579-3p, or HCG11+miR-579-3p+MDM2 treatment. (F) The invaded number of AsPC-1 cells was estimated by Transwell chamber when treated by HCG11, HCG11+miR-579-3p, or HCG11+miR-579-3p+MDM2. (G, H) The protein expression levels of NICD and Hes1 in AsPC-1 cells were measured by western blotting assay after upregulation of HCG11, HCG11+miR-579-3p, or HCG11+miR-579-3p+MDM2. *p**p#p##p###p&p&&p
