Correlation between miR-182 and MTSS1 expression in HCC tissues and cell lines. A: Relative expression of miR-182 was detected by real time RT-PCR and MTSS1 expression was tested with Western blot and quantified with ImageJ software in 5 paired HCC and normal tissues. B: There was a negative correlation between miR-182 and MTSS1 expression (n = 37). C: The expression of miR-182 is high and MTSS1 expression is low in HLF and HLE, whereas Hep-G2 and HUH-1 showed low expression of miR-182 and high expression of MTSS1. D: The expression of MTSS1 was negatively correlated with miR-182 expression in HCC cell lines. N: normal tissue; T: tumor.
