The effect of miR-126 on LOC migration. a, b The migration of LOCs in response to different concentrations of SDF-1α (25, 50, 100, 200 ng/mL). c The transfection efficiency of miR-126 was confirmed by real-time PCR. d, e The effect of miR-126 on LOC migration in the presence of 100 ng/mL of SDF-1α. d Crystal violet staining was performed to determine the number of migrated cells. e Cell counts per high-power field were analyzed by ImageJ. Data are presented as mean ± SD. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, and ***P < 0.001, vs respective control group; n ≥ 3. Scale bar = 100 μm
