miR-497 inhibits epithelial mesenchymal transition in breast carcinoma by targeting Slug

Epithelial to mesenchymal transition (EMT) is a critical step in the growth and dissemination of malignant diseases, including breast cancer. It is known that microRNAs (miRNAs) play important roles in the regulation of tumor properties in cancers. However, whether miR-497 contributes to EMT in breast cancer cells remains unknown. Our study demonstrated… (More)
