Effect of miR-196a on cell proliferationin vitro. (A, B) SPC-A1 cells were transfected with miR-196a inhibitors or anti-miR-NC, and A549 cells were transfected with pCDNA/miR-196a or pCDNA/miR-NC. MTT assay was performed to determine the proliferation of SPC-A1 or A549 cells. Data represent the mean ± S.D. from three independent experiments. (C, D) Colony-forming growth assays were performed to determine the proliferation of SPC-A1 or A549 cells. The colonies were counted and captured. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01.
