CircNHSL1 promotes gastric cancer progression by serving as a miRNA sponge of miR-1306-3p. a Pearson correlation analysis determined the significantly negative correlation between the levels of circNHSL1 and miR-1306-3p in 61 paired gastric cancer tissues (p < 0.01). b The effects of circNHSL1 on the expression of SIX1 was detected by qRT-PCR. c The effects of mimics, inhibitor and negative control on the luciferase activities were detected in gastric cancer cells after transfecting luciferase reporter plasmids with wild type of WT, Mutant or negative control. d Schematic illustration of the sequence of wild type of SIX1 3′-UTR (WT) and mutant sequences on the complementary sites of SIX1 3′-UTR with miR-1306-3p (Mutant). e and f Anti-AGO2 RIP assay was performed in MKN-28 cells after transfection with mimics or negative control, followed by agarose gel electrophoresis (e) and qRT-PCR (f) to detect the expression of circNHSL1 and miR-1306-3p. g The effects of circNHSL1 and miR-1306-3p on the luciferase activities of wild type of SIX1 mRNA 3′-UTR in gastric cancer cells were detected. h and i The effects of circNHSL1 and miR-1306-3p on the mRNA and protein expressions of SIX1 and Vimentin were detected by qRT-PCR and western blotting. j and k The effects of circNHSL1 and miR-1306-3p on the mobility, migration and invasion were confirmed by wound healing and transwell assays. All data are presented as the mean ± SEM of three experiments. **p < 0.01
