miR-195-5p/497–5p could inhibit viability and promote apoptosis of CCSCs by targeting MCM2. a, MCM2 were knocked down or overexpressed in CCSCs (SW620 CSCs and LoVo CSCs), with miR-195-5p and miR-497-5p also being overexpressed. Next, the expression of miR-195-5p and miR-497-5p in response to different treatments was detected by RT-qPCR. b, Cell viability as detected by CCK-8 assay. c, Quantitation for CCSCs apoptosis as detected by flow cytometry. d, The protein expression of apoptosis-related proteins (Bcl-2 and Bax) as detected by Western blot analysis. Measurement data were expressed as mean ± s.d. Data among multiple groups were compared using one-way analysis of variance and then analyzed with Tukey’s post-hoc test. Cell experiment was repeated three times. * p < 0.05 vs. si-NC. # p < 0.05 vs. pcDNA-MCM2 + miR-NC
