Ectopic expression of hsa-miR-124 in SiHa and CaSki cells. A. Whereas parental cell lines and empty vector control cells (SiHa_ctrl and CaSki_ctrl) showed no detectable expression of hsa-miR-124, cells transduced with hsa-miR-124 (SiHa_miR-124 and CaSki_miR-124) expressed hsa-miR-124. Ectopic hsa-miR-124 expression resulted in decreased proliferation rates of B. SiHa_miR-124 (red) and C. CaSki_miR-124 (red) compared to parental (black) and empty vector control cells (grey). In D. results of wound-healing assays in SiHa_miR-124, SiHa_ctrl and SiHa cells are shown, indicating decreased migratory capacity in cells expressing hsa-miR-124.
