The radioresistance of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma is a great obstacle to treatment. Although it has been demonstrated that microRNA-21 (miR-21) can act as an 'oncogene' in esophageal squamous cell carcinoma, its role in radioresistance remains unexplored. The aims of this study were to investigate the role of miR-21 in esophageal squamous carcinoma cells' radioresistance and to identify the possible mechanism. The relatively radioresistant esophageal squamous cancer TE-1 cells (TE-R60… CONTINUE READING
