Knocking-down EIF4A2 inhibits metastasis formation in the lung. a, b Knocking-down EIF4A2 significantly reduced numbers of mice with lung metastasis (a) and metastatic nodules (b). c Representative images of HE staining showed metastatic nodules. d RT-qPCR arrays were used to screen 84 metastasis-related genes and showed that C-MYC, KRAS and MTA1 mRNAs significantly reduced after knocking-down EIF4A2. e Western blots showed that c-Myc significantly decreased after knocking-down EIF4A2 stably, but MTA1 and KRAS remained unchanged. *, P < 0.05; **, P < 0.01 versus the control
