miR-6745-TIMP1 axis inhibits cell growth and metastasis in gastric cancer


Figure 5. miR-6745 suppresses gastric tumor growth in vivo. Subcutaneous xenografts of GC cells infected with miR-6745 overexpressing lentivirus (Lv-miR-6745) or control lentivirus (Lv-miR-NC). (A) Images of the tumors at autopsy from nude mice are presented. (B) Tumor volumes and average weight of xenografted tumors were measured. (C) Immunohistochemical (IHC) staining of TIMP1 and Ki67 in xenografted tumors from Lv-miR-6745 cells or control cells. Data represent the means ± SEM. **P < 0.01.
