Silencing of DANCR in CC cells inhibits tumor formation and metastasis in vivo. HT29 and SW116 cells transfected with si-DANCR or scramble siRNA were subcutaneously inoculated into BALB/c nude mice at a dose of 4 × 106 per mouse (n = 6 in each group). Tumor growth was measured continuously every 7 days. On the 35th d after implantation, the mice were euthanized via overdose of pentobarbital. a-b measurement of tumor size (A) and tumor weight (B); c, tumor sections were obtained and stained with and anti-KI67 antibodies, and the KI67-positive cells were evaluated using immunohistochemistry; d-e, another batch of mice (4 groups, each group n = 6) were injected with HT29 and SW116 cells through the tail vein, and the number of metastatic nodules in lung (D) and liver (E) was determined on the 45th d via HE staining. In panels B, C, D and E, data were analyzed using one-way ANOVA while data in panel A were analyzed using two-way ANOVA, and Tukey’s multiple comparison test was used for the post hoc test after ANOVA analysis, * p < 0.05
