MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play a critical role in tumor metastasis. In this study, we identified a set of 32 miRNAs involved in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) metastasis. Among them, miR-612 was shown for the first time to have inhibitory effects on HCC proliferation, migration, invasion, and metastasis. AKT2 was verified to be one of the direct targets of(More)
Endothelial cells (ECs) are critical for angiogenesis, and microRNAs play important roles in this process. We investigated the regulatory role of microRNAs in ECs of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) by examining the microRNA expression profile of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) in the absence or presence of human HCC cells, and identified(More)
BACKGROUND Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) usually has a dismal prognosis because of its limited response to current pharmacotherapy and high metastatic rate. Sulfated oligosaccharide has been confirmed as having potent antitumor activities against solid tumors. Here, we explored the preclinical effects and molecular mechanisms of isomalto oligosaccharide(More)
Previous research showed that microRNA-612 (miR-612) has inhibitory effects on cell proliferation, migration, invasion, and metastasis of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). AKT2 was confirmed to be a direct target of miR-612, through which the epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and metastasis of HCC were inhibited. Our present findings reveal that miR-612(More)
To establish a systematic site-specific metastatsis model of human hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) in nude mouse. HCCLM3-R cells were seeded into mice liver to establish xenograft mouse models. With the help of RFP, metastasis foci in lungs and lymph nodes in mice were detected using fluorescent stereomicroscopy and were removed. Cells derived from the(More)
