Relative AKT2 mRNA levels following transfection of miR-184 mimics (pre-miR-184), anti-miR-184, or a scrambled oligo (NC) into (A) Kelly and (B) SK-N-AS cells at 24, 48 and 72 hrs after transfection. RT-qPCR results were normalised to RPLPO ribosomal protein and are relative to the negative control at 24 hrs. Western Blot (C) representing protein levels of AKT2 in Kelly cells 72 hrs after transfection with the miR-184 mimics, a negative control oligo, or anti-miR-184. β-Actin was used for the endogenous control. (D) pMir-Reporter containing the AKT2 binding site for miR-184 in the 3' UTR region of the luciferase gene co-transfected into Kelly cells with a scrambled negative control oligonucleotide (left) or mature miR-184 mimic (middle). The right bar shows the result of co-transfection with the pMir-Reporter containing the mutated AKT2 binding site for miR-184 co-transfected into Kelly cells with mature miR-184 mimic. Luciferase values were normalized to B-galactosidase on a second plasmid that was co-transfected into each cell line and all values are relative to the negative control (left).
