miR-143 inhibits UCC function. (a) SW620 and SW480 cells were co-transfected with negative control siRNA or si-UCC#2 and the miR-143 inhibitor, and cell viability was evaluated via MTS assays. (b) Colony formation assays of CRC cells after co-transfection with negative control siRNA or si-UCC#2 and the miR-143 inhibitor. (c) EdU incorporation assays of CRC cells after co-transfection with negative control siRNA or si-UCC#2 and the miR-143 inhibitor. Scale bar: 200 μm. (d) Transwell invasion assays of CRC cells after co-transfection with negative control siRNA or si-UCC#2 and the miR-143 inhibitor. The data represent the mean±S.D. of three independent experiments. *P<0.05 by Student’s t-test
