MEP1A knock-down repress colorectal cancer growth and metastasis in vivo. Luciferase tagged sh-control and MEP1A-KD LoVo cells (3 × 106) were injected into the 4-week-old nude mice. Half of the mice were subcutaneously injected (Control-S and MEP1A-KD-S, 5 mice each group) and the remainder were injected by lateral tail vein (Control-T and MEP1A-KD-T, 5 mice each group). All four groups’ representative images of luciferase signals (a) and photon flux (b) are shown (* p < 0.05)
