MiR-139 suppresses HCC migration and invasion. a-e Hep3B and SMMC7721 cells were transfected with 100 nM miR-139 mimic oligos or control oligos. The migration capacity of (a) Hep3B and (b) SMMC7721 cells were analyzed with the transwell migration assay. The invasion ability of (c) Hep3B and (d) SMMC7721 cells were measured with the matrigel transwell invasion assay. e The protein expression levels of E-cadherin, Vimentin and SNAIL1 were assayed with western blot in both Hep3B and SMMC7721 cells. f Hep3B and SMMC7721 cells were transfected with 100 nM miR-139 inhibitory or control oligos. The protein levels of E-cadherin, Vimentin and SNAIL1 were measured by western blot in both cell lines. All experiments were repeated 3 times. ** P < 0.01, *** P < 0.001
