Figure 4. miR-523-5p targeted BATF3 directly. (A, B) Prediction of miR-523-5p targets by bioinformatics analysis. (C) Luciferase reporter assay was performed. (D) RIP assay was conducted to examine the interaction between miR-523-5p and BATF3. (E) miR-523-5p mimics suppressed the expression of BATF3. (F) CCK8 assay was utilized to test proliferation. (G, H) Transwell assay was performed to determine migration and invasion. *P<0.05.
